Carroll in line for England call

Published Add your comment

Andy Carroll looked set to be handed his maiden England call-up after the Newcastle striker was left out of the under-21 squad for Tuesday's friendly in Germany.

Carroll has been widely tipped to be selected by Fabio Capello for Wednesday's senior friendly with France and his omission from the Young Lions party will only serve to fuel that speculation.

However, the 21-year-old was also left out by head coach Stuart Pearce for last month's UEFA Under-21 Championship play-off with Romania and that did not lead to a call-up from Capello.
