Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is backing Andy Carroll for England's Euros squad.

Dalglish reckons Carroll will return to the Reds even stronger next season - regardless of whether he represents his country at either the European Championships or the Olympics.

"Andy will benefit from the fact he has been here for a year and has not had any problems with injuries," he told

"But the quality in the last couple of games has been fantastic and he has been building up to that for the whole season.

"I'm sure he will come back next season very much encouraged by his performances and starting afresh.

"We don't know what is going to happen with Andy yet - whether he is going to be away with England in the championships or chosen for the Olympics."
