Carroll and Green to face Norway

Published Add your comment

England manager Roy Hodgson has confirmed both Andy Carroll and Rob Green will start Saturday's friendly against Norway in Oslo.

The veteran coach will be taking charge of his first fixture in charge of the Three Lions, and has opted to give Carroll in particular the chance to prove his worth ahead of the forthcoming European Championships.

"Andy ended the season well and that was after a difficult start at Liverpool," Hodgson told a pre-match press conference. "He ended the season well and he has continued in the same vein with us."
