​Arsenal striker Welbeck questions De Gea decision

Arsenal's Danny Welbeck says he wasn't the only one who was surprised that his goal for England against Spain was overruled because of a foul.

Dutch referee Danny Makkelie overruled Welbeck's injury time goal that would have earned the Three Lions a 2-2 draw at Wembley in Nations League.

"I think if you asked Marco Alonso, he's say it was alright," said the forward. "I didn't intentionally touch the goalkeeper.

"He's kind of dropped the ball on my head, the ball's landed for me and I've put it in the back of the net.

"It would have been nice to crown the night like that. But the result's the result at the end of the day and we've got to try to improve on that."
