Rio Ferdinand reckons Manchester United teammate Danny Welbeck would've done better for England in a more attacking system.

Ferdinand reckons the youngster, however, had an excellent Euros.

"The only time we really kept the ball properly was when Danny Welbeck dropped short to collect it and linked the play," he told The Sun.

"But, usually, he was having to stay up and wasn't allowed to drop too much because we had set out a certain way with a 4-4-2 which didn't offer a great deal of flexibility."
