Carroll axed


Filed: Thursday, 8th November 2012
By: Staff Writer


Andy Carroll has been omitted from the England squad to face Sweden in a friendly next week.

Roy Hodgson has named a 23-man squad for the trip to Stockholm next week but Carroll, who is yet to score for West Ham since moving to the Boleyn on a season-long loan, has not been included.

Instead, Hodgson has taken the reasonably unusual step of naming just three strikers in his squad - Manchester United's Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck plus Chelsea's Daniel Sturridge.

The in-form Mark Noble, who was watched by Hodgson in Saturday's goalless draw with Manchester City has once again been overlooked in favour of the likes of Leon Osman (Everton), Raheem Sterling and Jonjo Shelvey (both Liverpool).

Full England squad

Goalkeepers
Fraser Forster (Celtic), Joe Hart (Manchester City), John Ruddy (Norwich City).

Defenders
Leighton Baines (Everton), Ryan Bertrand (Chelsea), Gary Cahill (Chelsea), Steven Caulker (Tottenham Hotspur), Phil Jagielka (Everton), Glen Johnson (Liverpool), Ryan Shawcross (Stoke City), Kyle Walker (Tottenham Hotspur).

Midfielders
Tom Cleverley (Manchester United), Steven Gerrard (Liverpool), Aaron Lennon (Tottenham Hotspur), Leon Osman (Everton), Jonjo Shelvey (Liverpool), Raheem Sterling (Liverpool), Theo Walcott (Arsenal), Jack Wilshere (Arsenal), Ashley Young (Manchester United).

Forwards
Wayne Rooney (Manchester United), Daniel Sturridge (Chelsea), Daniel Welbeck (Manchester United).

''Other than Forster, no 'Green'?''

''Very happy that Carroll is getting a break. Sorry for Nobes though, he has earned a place. If he was fighting for one of those three places then it must have been Osman and it must have been a very close call. I would like to have seen Hodgson take both Osman and Noble and see how they get on in the environment, in training, and hopefully on the pitch. If that left a choice of dropping Sterling or Shelvey... one is a very exciting international prospect and the other is Shelvey - I am not convinced he is a Premier League player yet.

A fired-up and well rested Andy Carroll to tear up St James Park this weekend! COYI!''

''Playing form and ability has never been much of an issue when playing for England over the last 20 years, coming from a fashionable club has, and it's still the same - remember the Parker comments from Cappello? Who really cares how England do anymore anyway, always a let down. The FA again have taken a yes man at the helm who will do exactly as asked and pick exactly who the sponsors tell him to.''
