England have started their Euro 2016 Championship qualifying opener campaign with an impressive 2-0 victory over Switzerland on Monday night in Basel.
Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck scored twice – the first goal comes in the 59th-minute and then added a second in stoppage time.
Here are the best twitter reactions from football stars on this wonderful victory.
This is why I’ve been excited by the Welbeck signing. He’s got pace & power – and if he plays centre-forward he’ll score buckets of goals.

England arguably could have won 4-0 tonight and the Swiss couldn’t have felt aggrieved.

Good performance from the boys, yes Switzerland were pretty poor but step in the right direction. Delph decent, is Wilshere fully fit?

Good result that for England. The Swiss really fancied they’d beat us too!

Well done to the lads- it’s always up/down with Eng to the extremes but I hope you can see that this is a young squad with potential to grow
