Danny Welbeck, the former England International, has revealed that his family, friends, and close associates were unhappy with his decision to make his debut against Ghana.

The tall striker, born in Manchester to Ghanaian parents, came through the famous Manchester United academy before playing for several other clubs in England, including Manchester United.

Welbeck made his debut for the Three Lions of England in an international friendly against Ghana on March 29, 2011, in a match that ended 1-1.

During the game, Andy Carroll scored the opening goal for England, while Asamoah Gyan weaved through the English defense and curled home a sublime equalizer at the death.

Welbeck, who came on as a substitute for Ashley Young in the 1-1 draw, heard boos from the stands, which included his family and friends.

“My mom and dad are from Ghana. It was mad, it was like a bittersweet moment. Obviously, I walked out at Wembley, coming on on the sidelines, I’ve a lot of family friends in the stand, and coming on I heard a lot of boos. Speaking to my cousins after the game, they were like, yes, we were booing you,” he told Andrew Mensah on Football on TNT.

Despite the initial mixed reception, Welbeck went on to make 42 appearances and scored 16 goals for the England national team.
