Too lazy to write my own review, so Wikipedia will have to suffice:

Daniel Nii T. M. "Danny" Welbeck (born 26 November 1990) is an English footballer of Ghanaian descent, who plays for Manchester United. His regular position is as a winger or a striker. Due to his height and running style, he has been compared to Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor and Portsmouth striker Nwankwo Kanu.

Born in Longsight, Manchester, England, to Ghanaian parents,[2] Welbeck joined Manchester United during the 2005–06 season, making his debut for the club's Under-18 side on 8 April 2006 in a league match against Sunderland. He then came on as a substitute in the next game, before being named as an unused substitute in the team's last two games of the season. The following season, he made a further 28 appearances for the Under-18s, scoring nine goals, including eight appearances and one goal in the FA Youth Cup, in which he helped the team to reach the final, despite being two years younger than some of the other players.

Welbeck signed his first trainee contract in July 2007, and started the 2007–08 season in the Under-18 side, but was quickly promoted to the Reserve team, making a number of substitute appearances. Then, in January 2008, he was called up to the first team for the trip to Saudi Arabia to play Al-Hilal in Sami Al-Jaber's testimonial. Welbeck made his debut in that game on 21 January 2008, coming on as a 65th-minute substitute for Anderson. Welbeck had the chance to snatch a draw for United when he was brought down in the penalty area in the final minute, but he put the penalty kick over the bar.[3]

On 25 January 2008, Alex Ferguson revealed that Welbeck would be considered a first team squad member for the rest of the 2007–08 season.[4] On 9 February 2008, Alex Ferguson revealed that Welbeck would be involved in the matchday squad for the Manchester derby the following day. He also hinted that Welbeck may be involved from the start of the game.[5] This did not come to pass however, as he was left out of the team entirely.[6]

Welbeck made his competitive debut for the Manchester United first team on 23 September 2008, starting up front in the team's League Cup Third Round match at home to Middlesbrough. United won the game 3–1, but Welbeck did not manage to get on the scoresheet despite going close in the third minute.[7] He played again in the Fourth Round against Queens Park Rangers on 11 November 2008, coming on as a 72nd-minute substitute for Rodrigo Possebon. A few minutes later, he was brought down in the penalty area by Peter Ramage; Carlos Tévez converted the resulting penalty kick and United won the match 1–0.[8] Welbeck made his Premier League debut on 15 November 2008, coming on as a 63rd-minute substitute for Park Ji-Sung against Stoke City. He marked his debut with a curling 30-yard strike into the top right corner for United's fourth goal in a 5–0 win.[9] Welbeck's next senior appearance for Manchester United came in an FA Cup Third Round tie against Southampton on 4 January 2009, when he opened the scoring in a 3–0 win.

2 senior goals already for United and he looks the business. Good to have young, English talent coming through as well. The question is: Can he make it at the highest level?

Wind your neck in you little [email protected], I bet you love Eduardo's Brazilian arse.

At least Danny is born and bred in Manchester, and only has eyes for the english national team, and won't jump into another one simply because he'd get into their team right away.

Being born to Ghanaian parents is very, very English.

You are obviously not familiar with the culture.
Look at this cvnt here, does your national team not have Camoranesi? I'm sure the Algerian Matteo Ferrari has been capped by you guys aswell.

Aren't you currently bending over backwards for a average Brazilian striker by the name of Amauri to play for your national team.

The double standards is ridiculous, fair enough if you don't agree with it, but when your own country is guilty of it, you have no right to get all high and mighty over players being naturalized. At least Welbeck is born and bred in England.

You should have just said Balotelli. They're pretty much the same. Both born to Ghanaian parents and raised in the country they want to represent.
