Ex-Arsenal striker Merson: England won't win World Cup with Man Utd's Welbeck

Former Arsenal and England striker Paul Merson says the Three Lions have no chance with Manchester United youngster Danny Welbeck in attack.

He wrote in the Daily Star: "We don’t even have a world-class goalscorer. Wayne Rooney is world class, but not as a goalscorer.

"Danny Welbeck? No. You won’t win a World Cup with him up front – or Carroll!

"Look at the Spain bench and you will see how far behind we are.

"Juan Mata, Fernando Torres, Fernando Llorente – they would all walk into the England team. Says it all really."
