England and Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck was pleased he was able to score for the Three Lions with another backheel.

The Red Devils star repeated the trick of his goal against Ukraine with the first of his two against San Marino.

“It is something I try to do when I get those positions, today it came off,” Welbeck said.

“In every game you want to score a goal but that was my first of the season, which made it more important.”
