Welbeck to Miss Ukraine Clash

Over at Wembley, as England took a further three points to try and earn that much yearned for place in Brazil, next summer, it was a night of mixed fortunes for Danny Welbeck.

Welbeck continued his fine run of form in an England shirt by scoring two of the four goals England netted in a convincing 4-0 win against Moldova.

However, his night was tarnished by the fact Welbeck picked up a yellow card, his second of the qualifying stages, which means he`ll be banned for the vital qualifier away to the Ukraine, on Tuesday evening.

Welbeck was booked for kicking the ball away after he`d narrowly failed to beat the offside trap. After the game Welbeck expressed his disappointment over the incident, proclaiming to reporters,

"When there are thousands of fans inside the stadium you don`t always hear the referee`s whistle."

"I thought I was onside and I wanted to put the ball into the net. So I was very disappointed to get the yellow card and think it was a very unfortunate decision."

"It was difficult to get my head right after that because I knew I was not going to be taking part in the next game."

"But you just have to give it your best shot and hope you get the right result for the team."

It was, as Danny suggests, an unfortunate incident and one that the referee might have dealt with harshly!

Felt for the lad he put in a good shift during the game. God knows what was running through the refs mind for the yellow welbeck was virtually kicking the ball as he blew it was that close. It's hardly as if he kicked it away petulantly joke of a ref.

Been one of England's best players since jumping onto the national scene. What I don't get is, how comes he can manage a goal every other game near enough for country but struggle to find the net as regularly despite the better service at club level? I can't even put it down to premier league opposition being better than most national teams for the simple fact that Welbeck does get more chances but just can't finish!
