Andy Carroll and Mark Noble may have more of a chance after Sam Allardyce's appointment.

West Ham United fans were left disappointed in the summer not to see any of their players taken to the European Championships by England manager Roy Hodgson.

Hammers fans had suggested - in fact some expected - that Mark Noble should have gone after an excellent season in the Premier League for the midfield talisman.

Andy Carroll was also mentioned. He had a brilliant end to the season and the West Ham striker would have been a different option in the attacking options for England.

Neither went, but things at the Three Lions have changed.

Former West Ham boss Sam Allardyce is the new England manager and will know the pair well from his club coaching career.

This, believes West Ham co-chairman David Gold, might see them in the England fold. He told talkSPORT this week (04/08/2016):

“Sam will know these players inside out. He knows he can trust them, he knows they are quality.

“I certainly hope that one of the benefits of Sam becoming the England manager will give players like those that you’ve mentioned the opportunity to play for England.

“I’d love Mark Noble and Andy Carroll. I know obviously I am biased but Andy Carroll will always give England something different. If you bring an Andy Carroll on with 20 minutes to go it changes everything.”

Both players were certainly unlucky not to be included in the England team in the summer and will be hoping that the appointment of their former West Ham gaffer can improve their chances of getting into the international fold throughout the 2016-17 campaign.
