Joe Cole has likened Liverpool striker Andy Carroll to former Chelsea teammate Didier Drogba.

Carroll struck his first goal for England last night against Ghana.

"He's very much like Didier Drogba," said Cole, speaking to LFC Weekly.

"Andy's 22 - we all know what a cracking player Didier is, but he wasn't playing at this level at that age.

"There's still a lot of developing for Andy to do so he can get better and better."
