Danny Welbeck has been called up by England for their upcoming matches with Spain and Switzerland.
As was the case at the World Cup, Welbz is the only Gunner represented in Gareth Southgate’s squad.
He’ll be hoping to take advantage of Jamie Vardy’s international retirement to gain a few more minutes than he did in Russia. The striker featured for around 15 minutes of England’s run to the semi-finals.
The Three Lions will make their UEFA Nations League bow with a game against the Spanish at Wembley on Saturday 8 September. Three days later they take on Granit Xhaka and Stephan Lichtsteiner in a friendly at Leicester’s King Power Stadium.
We’re still not entirely sure what the hell the UEFA Nations League actually and we’re not sure we really care. From the outside it looks like a ridiculously complicated attempt to tart-up Interlulls…but as we all know Interlulls are untartupable. Because they are shite and boring.
