Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck’s hopes of featuring for England next year in the Euro 2016 tournament has suffered a setback, according to the recent comments made by England manager Roy Hodgson. Danny Welbeck has been sidelined with a knee injury since last season and according to various reports, the 24 year old is expected to be out for another 6 months. The England Manager has expressed fears about the slim chances of Danny Welbeck making the England Euro 2016 team if the 24 year old fails to overcome his injury problem.
He said “Welbeck bothers me now, he has already been out for me since March so that’s over four months already. Now I hear it’s going to be another six months, so I can only hope that Danny recovers a bit quicker and hits the ground running.“I’ve got to make certain there are a few Jamie Vardys and Harry Kanes and Theo Walcotts because we can’t keep going around talking about the ones who aren’t there.“What we’re trying to develop is a bigger pool of players, to get that up to 30, where we can say: ‘Whatever happens, as long as we can get 23 of this 30, we’ll be OK.’ “Then you would have to be very unlucky if two or three in the same position went down. We don’t need more than 30.”.
The 3 Lions 6-0 win over San Marino on Saturday sealed England’s place in the Euros next year. The England team will be hoping to win the Euros tournament for the first time in their history, while Danny Welbeck will be looking to recover quickly from his injury and return back to the England fold.
