England v Ukraine: First Goalscorer Tip

Welbeck: Attracting great reviews.

One of Friday's heroes, the Man Utd youngster will be full of confidence after 2 goals in his last 3 international starts.

The scriptwriters think the stage is set for Wayne Rooney to announce his arrival at Euro 2012 with a comeback goal. He is a best price 11/2 (StanJames) to break the deadlock, but at 15/2 (PaddyPower) we might be best sticking with England’s most recent goal hero - Danny Welbeck.

In 2011-12 the Manchester United duo combined to great effect, notching 30 goals between them in the 18 fixtures they started together. Rooney is obviously the main man, but having not played a competitive game since 13 May, he may not be razor-sharp.

But we know that Welbeck is firing on all cylinders after he grabbed a glorious late winner with his back to goal to beat Sweden 3-2 on Friday. That made it two goals in three starts for the 21-year-old who also netted in England’s final warm-up game against Belgium at Wembley.

If doubts persist, consider the benefit of placing your First Goalscorer bet on Danny Welbeck with PaddyPower. Not only is 15/2 the best odds available, the Irish firm will refund your losing bet if Rooney scores at anytime.
