Liverpool striker Andy Carroll earns England chance
The striker is currently out on loan with West Ham
Roy Hodgson's assistant Ray Lewington will scout the West Ham striker Andy Carroll on Saturday when he faces his former club Newcastle, with a view to bringing him back into the England squad.
Carroll, 24, has not been called up England since October. He has just seven goals this season – but four in the last five games – and Hodgson has few options. England play Republic of Ireland at Wembley and Brazil in Rio at the end of the season.
