West Ham United striker Andy Carroll hopes his two-goal display against West Brom at the weekend will catch the eye of England manager Roy Hodgson, says The
The 24-year-old has struggled to find his form on a consistent basis since signing on loan from Liverpool last summer, finding the net just five times for Sam Allardyce’s side.
But the ex-Newcastle striker hopes his impressive performance against the Baggies will tempt Hodgson to recall him to the national team, having been dropped for the qualifiers against San Marino and Montenegro.
Carroll said: “I hope to play in every game for England but I haven’t been picked so I’ve just got to work hard here at West Ham and hopefully I’ll be involved next time.
“I was putting myself about and got two goals (against West Brom), so that’s what I like to think I’m about. Obviously I like to score goals, so getting two shows that I’ve got it. I’m feeling good with the lads.”
Carroll has helped the Hammers to mid-table safety in their first season back in the Premier League, with the club currently sat safely in 11th place on 36 points.
Boss Allardyce has affirmed his interest in permanently securing the services of the one-time £35m striker, who has nine England caps to his name.
