Ronaldo and Messi’s departure leaves way clear for Welbeck


As the taxi drew away with Ronaldo and Messi in the back, attention immediately turned to Ballon D’or favourite, Danny Welbeck.

Welbeck, who has until this point been in charge of ironing the bibs, is widely tipped to finish the tournament with the cleanest kit.

Welbeck is expected to feature heavily in the warm-up against Columbia, where he will hand out yellow bibs to the attackers, in their mini game against the defence.

‘See that finish from Cavani last night– I’d have done that,’ said Welbeck.

‘Why am I here?’ he then asked.
