Liverpool defender Glen Johnson today insisted Anfield teammate Andy Carroll deserves to play for England in the European Championships.
England boss Roy Hodgson will name his squad for this summer’s tournament in Poland and Ukraine next Wednesday afternoon, and Johnson believes Carroll’s ‘unplayable’ form of late for the Reds merits a call-up.
“Should he go? Yes, definitely,” said Johnson. “In the last few weeks Andy has been fantastic for us – he has been unplayable.
“Chelsea have got two big centre-halves and he just threw them around. He looks like he’s quicker and he’s working a lot harder. He’s doing really well.
“John Terry looked petrified at times.
“Andy is a big lump but he’s good on the ball and works really hard. He will scare a lot of defenders.”
