Alan Shearer has backed Andy Carroll to take the European Championships by storm - but only if England play to his strengths.

Despite a turbulent year and a half since becoming the most expensive English player of all time, Liverpool striker Carroll is in line to spearhead his country's assault on Euro 2012.

And Shearer, who briefly managed Carroll at Newcastle, said: "The ability's there. I saw that at Newcastle. He's had an in-and-out season but, for the last month, you've probably seen more of what Andy Carroll is about."
