Welbeck, who had been at United since he was 8-years-old, scored both goals as England secured a much-needed 2-0 win in Basel following their disappointing World Cup campaign.
In a surprise move on transfer deadline day, the striker left his boyhood club and new manager Louis van Gaal to join Premier League rivals Arsenal for fee reported to be in the region of £16m.
Expected to make his debut for the north London side against Manchester City on Saturday, the new signing has already made a good impression with his performance for the national team.
As he starts scoring goals for England and fans continue to bicker over him, take a look at the best Danny Welbeck jokes and memes.
Since joining Arsenal, Welbeck has scored in every match he started.
