Vote for Welbeck

Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck is on a five-man shortlist to be named England Player of the Year.

The Reds forward, who only made his senior international debut in March 2011, has impressed during his 11 appearances for the Three Lions in 2012.

During those games, which included friendlies, European Championship fixtures and World Cup qualifiers, Danny found the net five times – more than any other England player.

Also vying for the honour are Steven Gerrard, Joe Hart, Ashley Cole and Glen Johnson.

The award will be decided on a fan vote, so head to the official England website to show your support for Danny. Voting closes at midnight on Sunday 13 January.

The prize will be presented as part of the inaugural FA England Awards ceremony, which will take place at St. George’s Park on Sunday 3 February 2013.
