England striker, Danny Welbeck has revealed he is “excited” to play in Tuesday’s clash with Scotland. In spite of being labelled as a “friendly” match, Welbeck and England know that the game will prove to be far more.
The Arsenal striker bagged a brace for the Three Lions in their 3-1 win over Slovenia in their Euro 2016 Qualifier on Saturday. Now, Welbeck is ready to go again against England’s oldest rivals in the sides 112th meeting.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Welbeck said, “Obviously it is only a friendly but we want to win every single game,” he said. “We can’t go in thinking we are going to do anything else than that. It is going to be a great atmosphere. I watched the game against the Republic of Ireland the other night and the atmosphere sounded unbelievable. I just can’t wait to get out there and taste it.”
England’s form since the disappointment of the World Cup has been superb and Welbeck says the squad are looking to put the upset of Brazil 2014 firmly behind them, “I can’t really go back too much to the summer. We can’t change anything from there now, so the most important thing is to prepare well for the next game and obviously try to get the win.”
As Welbeck and England prepare for their rivalry clash on Tuesday, both will be hoping for another win.
