Andy Carroll is set to make his first competitive start for England in this weekend's crunch Euro 2012 qualifier against Wales at the Millennium Stadium.

The Liverpool forward has made just two starts for his new club since his £35 million move from Newcastle United in the January transfer window, after a thigh injury had kept him out of action for over two months.

The 22-year-old made his first and only England appearance against France in November's friendly at Wembley, at the expense of Peter Crouch, and the Tottenham Hotspur striker, despite his 22 international goals, is expected to miss out again in Cardiff.


Reds manager Kenny Dalglish had warned manager Fabio Capello against picking Carroll, claiming the new Liverpool No. 9 hadn't fully recovered from his injury.

Carroll is yet to open his account for his new club since his move from St James's Park.
