DANNY Welbeck is too young and laid-back to offer any great insight into tomorrow’s opponents Sweden - but the make-up of his virtual team confirms the danger man for England in Kiev.

The 21-year-old is unburdened by past failures and approaches every game with the same chilled-out attitude.

Opponents are largely irrelevant. Some are tougher to overcome than others but each challenge is met with verve, dynamism and optimism. In the case of Zlatan Ibrahimovic that means a place in Welbeck’s team.

“I really watch the Premier League,” said Welbeck, when asked about the AC Milan forward. “But on video games and consoles if you’ve got Ibrahimovic on your team you’re not sad. We all know the qualities he’s got.”
