Man Utd's Welbeck confident England can do the job over Sweden

Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck believes he and his England teammates can produce a winning performance over Sweden on Friday.

The Three Lions take on the Swedes in Kiev in their second Group D match at Euro2012 and Welbeck, who played was replaced by Theo Walcott in injury time of the 1-1 draw with France on Monday, is confident of scoring goals and helping his country to maximum points.

"I was really excited to be in a major competition for England and obviously to make the start, I was really honoured," he told Sky Sports.

"I think it was a good start for us. We set our platform and we really want to build on that from now on - and I think we can improve a lot more.

"Looking at it from a neutrals perspective it should be a good game to watch," he added. "Once the game gets opened up, there will be a few goal scoring opportunities getting carved out."
