Danny Welbeck proud to be on the verge of matching David Beckham’s England goal tally

Danny Welbeck is setting his sights on surpassing David Beckham’s England goal tally after underlining his international credentials against Costa Rica.Arsenal forward Welbeck has never been a prolific scorer at club level but boasts an impressive return for the Three Lions, heading home his 16th goal in 39 appearances during Thursday’s 2-0 friendly win at Elland Road.That makes him the top scorer in Gareth Southgate’s World Cup squad – three ahead of Harry Kane – and within one goal of matching Beckham’s career tally.Beckham was in his prime at Manchester United when Welbeck was coming through the Old Trafford youth set-up, making him a particularly notable target.’
