The West Ham United man, although a giant, is superb on the ball as well as in the air.
He may be hampered by injuries, but Carroll would definitely be pushing for an international starting spot.
The big Geordie has a superb volley as well as a powerful header.
Carroll's reputation was grounded at Liverpool where he inevitably failed to live-up to his £35 million price tag, but don't assume that the striker is finished. His ability will eventually shine through with the Hammers.
Understandably there are some top strikers overlooked, but Carroll has great potential and is not suffocated by foreign stars in east London, a good place to be to show his ability.
Contenders, Olivier Giroud, Roberto Soldado, Fernando Torres.
