Danny Welbeck came off the bench to make his England debut in their draw with Ghana at Wembley

The 20-year-old, who is on loan at Sunderland, is delighted with how he's made the move into the full England side.

"I’ve been playing for England at every single youth team level so it was a natural progression to move up to the seniors," he said.

"I am obviously delighted with my progress."

Elsewhere, in Euro 2012 qualifying Nemanja Vidic came through Serbia's draw with Estonia unscathed as he continues his recovery from a calf injury.

The Serb now appears certain to make his United return this weekend at Upton Park.

Jonny and Corry Evans were both left frustrated after Northern Ireland's goalless draw with Slovenia.

The older Jonny battled on with a calf injury throughout and could be out of United's visit to West Ham United and Nigel Worthington's side fell short in their aim to go second in Group C.

Darron Gibson and Javier Hernandez only made cameo appearances for Republic of Ireland and Mexico respectively.

The Irishman played just 24 minutes in his country's friendly defeat to Uruguay, while 'Chicharito' was replaced at half-time in Mexico's draw with Venezuela.

The biggest impact from a United player in the final round of international fixtures before the season ends came from Nani, who despite starting Portugal's friendly on the bench, came on to set up Ruben Micael's second goal in their victory over Finland.

Finally, Federico Macheda, on loan at Sampdoria, started for the Italy under-21's in their draw with Germany.
