United - Welbeck Dilemma?

United - Welbeck Dilemma?

I`m going to be honest here and categorically state that it is a situation that shouldn`t be allowed to develop!

The stupid rule that allows you to play international football for one country and then switch to another, as long as the original appearances were not in what`s classed as a competition related fixture, needs to be changed.

On Tuesday night, Danny Welbeck made his England debut. His arrival in an England shirt should have been amongst the proudest moments of his young life. Instead, after being booed by the 30,000 Ghanaian supporters inside Wembley, Welbeck is left a confused young man.

Welbeck, of Ghanaian descent, is quote din the papers this morning discussing his own dilemma as to whether he should stick with England or switch to playing for Ghana, comments which read,

"I will definitely have to think about that."

"Asamoah Gyan and John Mensah, my team-mates at Sunderland, have been in my ear, saying 'Come and play for Ghana."

"I love both countries but it`s been a natural progression for me to play for England because I`ve represented them at every youth level right up to the Under-21`s and I`m delighted to have made it into the senior side as well."


And as for that debut moment,

"It was a bitter-sweet moment - I wish it hadn`t of been against Ghana."

"I kind of understand the fans reaction because I`ve got a lot of love for both countries, but I can`t play for both - I`m never going to keep everyone happy."


Like we said; what a stupid rule!

Wouldn't blame him if he went Ghanian though it would perhaps be more beneficial to play for England. The passion, hunger, drive and enthusiasm the Ghana team showed made me consider becoming Ghanian! I really do wish England played with such pace power and passion.
