It would seem the England manager did not want to pick another veteran midfielder with Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard in the side. Instead, more youthful options Adam Lallana, Ross Barkley, Jack Wilshere and Jordan Henderson can fill the centre of midfield.
32-year-old Carrick, who has 31 caps for the Three Lions tweeted the following...
Disappointed to be left out of the squad, World Cups are special and to miss out hurts. Want to wish the boys the very best of luck.; Michael Carrick (@carras16) May 12, 2014
