Slav sends Hodgson a message


Slaven Bilic reckons Andy Carroll l has “every chance” of making England’s Euro 2016 squad.

Carroll has made an impact from the Irons bench this season and may retain his place against Everton on Saturday with Sakho sidelined.

And Bilic said: “He has to perform well and as a centre-forward, he has to score goals. It is very simple.

“If he continues to play, and continues to play as he did against Chelsea when he came on or against Palace or Norwich, then he has got every chance to go there.

“He should be focused on that and he should try his best because on one hand, England has got some good centre-forwards but on the other hand, when Andy Carroll plays well, he is among the best here. So it is up to him.

“He has got a chance. He is in the shop window. He has got to perform.”
