Tottenham youngster Adam Smith believes club-mate Tom Carroll is throughly deserving of his first inclusion in England's under-21 squad.

Stuart Pearce named the 20-year-old among his 25-man party to take on Iceland on Thursday and Belgium on Monday in their bid to qualify for the European Championships.

Carroll has made six appearances for Spurs so far this term - all but one coming in the Europa League - and has impressed with some cultured displays.

Smith, meanwhile, made his first appearance for the Young Lions in September, after starring away from White Hart Lane with MK Dons.

And the 20-year-old midfielder expects Carroll to slot seamlessly into Pearce's set-up.

"I’ve watched the European games and he’s done really well for the first team," said Smith.

"I played against him for Bournemouth against Orient last season. He’s not the biggest player physically but technically, he’s absolutely spot-on.

"He’s always had that ability on the ball and the confidence to receive it anywhere. He’s certainly got something about him.

"It would be great if he got a first cap."
