Bringing some much-needed life during a torrid Premier League season for Manchester United in 2013/14, Danny Welbeck will be a regular playmaker for England in the 2014 World Cup and profitable in player betting markets. Welbeck could be the surprise World Cup betting tip for England's top scorer within their youth-inspired squad this summer, as well as to find the target in individual goalscorer markets during three crucial group D games.
Welbeck made his way through the Manchester United youth ranks between 2001-2008, before finally making a big mark on his Premier League debut on November 2008, coming on as a 63rd minute substitute for Park Ji-Sung against Stoke City and curling a debut 30-yard strike into the top right corner during United's 5–0 win.
This would be one of 20 goals in 90 appearances for Welbeck - awarded the Jimmy Murphy Young Player of the Year in 2007/08 - who had his time with the Red Devils interloped when loaned to Preston North End for eight appearances, followed by a more successful 26 for Sunderland in 2010/11 during which he netted six times including during a fine 3-0 victory over Chelsea for the Black Cats.
Returning to Manchester United after his loan spells the following season, Welbeck was part of the Premier League-winning side in 2012/13 to add to the League Cup triumph in 2008/09 and a pair of FA Community Shields during 2011 and 2013, arguably showing his most confident performances during the recently-concluded campaign by scoring 10 goals for his club in 36 appearances.
On 29 March, 2011, Welbeck was called up for maiden international duties for England in their friendly fixture against Ghana - a team that had previously eyed Welbeck for representing their own squad.
Since his 81st minute appearance as a substitute, Welbeck has scored eight goals in 21 senior team appearances, including a brace against both San Marino and Moldova during qualification for the 2014 World Cup in which he made nine appearances for Roy Hodgson's squad.

Welbeck's recent form for Manchester United during their troublesome 2013/14 Premier League campaign was somewhat of a saving grace at times for the English giants, his attacking presence coming from both a winger's role as well as central to make him a serious threat for individual goalscorer markets during England's tough group D campaign, as well as for the team's individual top scorer of the tournament.
