Carroll linked with England return as Southgate checks in

West Ham striker Andy Carroll's recent fine run of form should result in an England call-up, according to a number of pundits.

And the message appears to have found favour with current England manager Gareth Southgate, who has confirmed he will be visiting the Olympic Stadium this weekend to watch Carroll and Co. against West Bromwich Albion.




Carroll, who celebrated his 28th birthday last month last featured for the national side five years ago in the 2012 European Championships, a year or so after moving to Liverpool in a 35million switch from Newcastle.

He has attracted Southgate's attention having scored six goals in 16 outings so far this season - four of which have come from his four most recent appearances against Crystal Palace, Middlesbrough, Manchester City and Southampton.

Also in contention for a spot in Southgate's national squad from the WHU stable are flying winger Michail Antonio and defender Aaron Cresswell, who made his international bow in a 2-2 draw with Spain at Wembley last November.
