Danny Welbeck feared he would suffer Euro 2012 injury heartbreak but is now looking to build on scoring his first goal for England.

The Manchester United striker suffered an ankle setback during the finale to domestic season against Manchester City which cast doubts over his participation in Poland and Ukraine. But unlike John Ruddy, Gareth Barry, Frank Lampard and Gary Cahill, Welbeck was able to make his comeback and net the winner against Belgium on Saturday.

He demonstrated a cool head in converting the chance laid on for him by United team-mate Ashley Young. Welbeck said: "I was delighted to get my first goal for England. It was something I'd been looking forward to since I was a little kid. I'm now looking to build on that and get more goals under my belt and more caps as well but I'm just glad that I'm fit."
