Danny Welbeck is pleased with his first goals of the season in England's 5-0 win against San Marino.

Manchester United and England striker Danny Welbeck has admitted that it was "important" for him to open his account for the season with a brace for the Three Lions against San Marino.

Welbeck's first was a backheel flick from an Aaron Lennon cross, the second such goal he has scored for his nation, and the 21-year-old admitted that it is a type of goal that he likes to score.

"It is something I try to do when I get those positions, today it came off," BBC Sport quotes Welbeck as saying.

"In every game you want to score a goal but that was my first of the season, which made it more important."

The win keeps England top of Group H with seven points from a possible nine.
