Danny Welbeck says that he is "really relishing" playing alongside his Manchester United teammate Wayne Rooney in attack for England.

Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck is enjoying playing alongside teammate Wayne Rooney for the England national team.

Welbeck and Rooney scored twice each for the Three Lions in their 5-0 victory over San Marino in a 2014 World Cup qualifier at Wembley on Friday.

"I'm used to playing with Wazza up front at United and am really relishing the chance to play with him for England," he said.

"Once we get into positions in and around the box, we know different styles of combinations to play."

England are in Poland for their next qualifier on Tuesday, and Welbeck wants his side to bag maximum points.

"Now we're all really looking forward to the Poland game," he said. "It's going to be difficult but once we get on the pitch, we're going to show our stuff and show everybody what we can do.

"We are top of the group now. That's where we want to be, that's the main aim, and that's where we want to finish as well."

England are currently at the top of Group H with seven points from three matches.
