Andy Carroll names two other West Ham players deserving of England shot

Andy Carroll has been touted as a potential inclusion in the England squad.

West Ham United striker Andy Carroll believes team-mates Aaron Cresswell and Mark Noble are also deserving of a place in England’s squad this summer, The Sun reports.

Carroll has been in blistering form for the Hammers of late, impressing a number of Premier League observers and prompting calls for an England shot following his hat-trick against Arsenal.

There is no denying that the former Newcastle United man would a strong option for England, yet thus far not a single West Ham player has been called up by Roy Hodgson leading up to the summer.

Carroll, speaking to reporters on the matter, says he has not given up hope yet of a call-up while also suggesting both Cresswell and Noble deserve to be given an opportunity to stake a claim for a place.

“I’ve got the holiday all ready to go but I’ve not paid the deposit yet just in case. Maybe me, Mark Noble and Aaron Cresswell deserve to be there. I’ve not given up hope for sure,” Carroll told The Sun.

Carroll, 27, was in the England squad for the European Championships in 2012 and proved to be a real handful for defences, using his height and aerial power to bully defenders.

The striker has Premier League goals in 26 starts this term, yet his performances have arguably been dwarfed by those of Noble and Cresswell who have both been absolutely superb.

Cresswell has been one of the league’s best left-backs this season, while Noble has enjoyed the best spell of his career since the New Year and on form should at least be heavily considered for a position.
