Danny Welbeck’s cracking goal for the England Under 21s

One goal apiece for Danny Welbeck and Jordan Henderson in tonight’s 4-0 thrashing by England Under 21s of Denmark in Viborg. There are clips of both Danny’s excellent strike and Jordan’s impressive individualistic goal and, for as long they last, we have them …

This a treat. We all know how good Danny Welbeck is. His superb display at Chelsea spoke volumes for his talents. His control and shot deserved to clinch an improbable winner at the Emirates. And we’ve seen how well he can perform at Under 21 international level. Prepare to see it again.

Most of us hope Steve Bruce gets his wish and hangs on to him for at least another year on loan from Manchester United.

And we hope above all that an arrangement that suits Sunderland’s interests, loan or purchase, is made an absolutely non-negotiable part of any horsetrading over Mr J Henderson, who also played and scored tonight in Denmark.

It would actually be nice to keep Danny, sell Jordan for £20m and then get him straight back on loan, though it would be an even better idea if we were to become established as a buying, not selling club and could invite Sir Alex Ferguson and any managerial A N Other to re-arrange “off” and “bog” into a well-known phrase or saying when they come calling.

But for now, let us just savour the talents we have. Starting with tonight’s Under 21 game against Denmark.

With great thanks to some good people in Russia (and old friends at Republik of Mancunia for being the reason I located it), we offer first of all a clip of Welbeck’s goal.

Comments at Republik of Mancunia ranged from “quality stuff Danny” and “what a finish! This boy is going to be a quality striker!” to “video is a bit Frank Spencer. Cracking finish Danny. Brucie wants to keep him for another year on loan. With Hernandez looking the real deal, that might suit us and the player. And Sunderland of course.”

One wag said he could have scored it himself. Judge for yourselves …

Jordan’s goal also had quality written all over it, even if the commentator seemed undecided as to whether he’d used body strength and close control before tucking the ball through the goalie’s legs – or committed two fouls, one with each arm, on the way to scoring.

Here it is …
