England need Carroll - Gerrard

Next Story

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard believes team-mate Andy Carroll has made a late case to go to the European Championships with England.

Carroll, the club's record signing, was their outstanding player in Saturday's 2-1 FA Cup final defeat to Chelsea despite only coming on as a substitute with 35 minutes to go. By that time the Reds were trailing to goals from Ramires and Didier Drogba after a woeful Reds' performance allowed the Stamford Bridge side to seize the initiative.

Gerrard said: "I think his form the last two or three months has been fantastic and he is certainly pushing for a place back in the England squad in my opinion."
