Welbeck ruled out of Sweden game

INJURED: Welbeck

MANCHESTER UNITED and England striker Danny Welbeck has been forced to withdraw from tonight’s (November 15) international fixture against Sweden with a muscle strain.

The 20-year-old forward, who was set to make his first start for the Three Lions, suffered the injury in England’s 1-0 win over Spain on Saturday (November 12).

Chelsea’s Daniel Sturridge could be set replace Welbeck in the starting line-up. The 22-year-old has been in impressive form in the Premier League this season with four goals in seven games.

England have not beaten Sweden in 43 years, failing to win in the 12 contests that the countries have had since 1968.
