Welbeck relishes growing partnership with Rooney for England

The England international is ready to continue showcasing the promising partnership with his club teammate as the Three Lions prepare for their World Cup qualifier in Warsaw.

Manchester United forward Danny Welbeck is relishing the chance to pair again with Wayne Rooney as the Red Devils duo look to continue their sparkling combination after the 5-0 win against San Marino at Wembley on Friday.

The Manchester and Merseyside natives have been impressing at the club level but have now successfully transferred their link-up play to the international stage after both scored twice during the comfortable win. According to the Daily Mail, the 21-year old Welbeck is eager to show the world how clinical the pairing can be.

"I'm used to playing with Wazza up front at United and am really relishing the chance to play with him for England," Welbeck said. "Once we get into positions in and around the box, we know different styles of combinations to play.

"Now we're all really looking forward to the Poland game (Tuesday). It's going to be difficult, but once we get on the pitch, we're going to show our stuff and show everybody what we can do. We are top of the group now. That's where we want to be, that's the main aim, and that's where we want to finish as well."

Welbeck also took time to praise the way Rooney took on the captaincy against San Marino.
"As a captain, he's good. He's always talking to you, letting you know what you're doing right, what you're doing wrong," Welbeck said. "He's like that when he's not got the armband as well, so it makes no difference really."
