Arsenal star misses England training due to knee complaint

Arsenal star Danny Welbeck has picked up a knee problem ahead of England duty, being unable to participate in their first training session this week, according to reports from the Express.

Welbeck has been in fine form for the Gunners after recovering from a knee operation that kept him out of action for almost the entire campaign, scoring in their latest 2-0 win over Everton this past weekend.

However, Arsenal and the Football Association made an agreement to take care of the striker during the international break, and is now receiving treatment on his left knee at St. George’s Park.

This will come as a big blow to the Three Lions, who are concerned over his fitness before their friendlies against Germany and the Netherlands.

The 25-year-old is one of England boss Roy Hodgson’s favourite players due to his versatility, being able to play in any of the three attacking positions up front.

Welbeck has only featured nine times for Arsenal this season, scoring four goals.
