Danny Welbeck Goes For The Skill Move, Confuses Himself

Danny Welbeck might play for one of the world’s biggest clubs in Manchester United, but that doesn’t make him invincible to a mistake every now and then.

During Manchester United’s match against the Singha All-Stars Saturday evening, the first match of the team’s preseason tour, Welbeck ended up with the ball near the opposition’s corner flag. As Welbeck is prone to do, he attempted a skill move to move past his defender. Unfortunately, it didn’t quite work out, as the English star accidentally kicked the ball out of bounds.

We think the announcer summed it perfectly: “Oh, Danny, Danny…”

"Telepathic" is how many pundits described the legendary striker partnership between Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole, who in three seasons (1998-2001) combined for a whopping 123 goals with Manchester United.

Yorke and Cole reunited for this video, where they challenge United’s current strikers Wayne Rooney, Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez, and Danny Welbeck to replicate their telepathic connection on the soccer field by wearing blindfolds in drills!

This short video is really fun to watch, and Rooney steals the show late when he one-times a Welbeck cross and smashes it right into the top corner!
