Big snub for Carroll


CarrollEnglandAndy Carroll has missed out on an international call up for the games against Germany and Lithuania

It had been thought that Gareth Southgate was ready to hand him a recall given the shortage of strikers available to him currently.

Harry Kane, Daniel Sturridge and Wayne Rooney are all unavailable because of inury but the England boss – who has been to watch Carroll – has opted not to give him another chance on the international stage.

Speaking about the possibility of adding to his nine England caps in January, Carroll said:  “There are more caps in me. I’ve always thought I could play for England if I am on my game — if I am fit.”

Rather than use Carroll, Southgate has decided to promote Marcus Rashford from the England Under-21s instead.
