Despite refusing to publicly name his side for the make-or-break Euro 2008 qualifier with Croatia, England coach Steve McClaren seems set to take the biggest gamble of his career by naming Scott Carson in goal.

Carson, currently on loan at Aston Villa from Liverpool, only made his international debut in Friday´s friendly against Austria in Vienna.

While the 22-year-old kept a clean sheet, he was hardly tested by a poor Austrian side and the feeling had been that Paul Robinson would return for Wednesday´s Wembley encounter, when England require a point to seal their passage into next summer´s finals. However, it now looks likely Carson will get the nod.
