Man Utd striker Welbeck: Family booed me during England debut - I loved it!

Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck is proud of his first England cap.

Welbeck is focused on the U21 campaign, and has recalled the pride, and the booing from his own Ghanaian relatives, when he got an England senior cap against Ghana last ­season.

He told the Sunday Mirror: "It felt like a natural ­succession ­stepping up to the seniors ­because I've been playing for ­England since I was 14.

"Of course I got booed ­because I was ­eligible to play for Ghana too!

"I even had a few cousins in the stands and they said they were booing!

"It was fine, we all had a little laugh at the end of the game. I've still got aunties and uncles back in Ghana and they were all really happy for me having made my debut for England so it was all sweet."
