Liverpool boss wants to see Carroll in England squad

Liverpool forward Andy Carroll should definitely be in England's squad for this summer's Euros according to Kenny Dalglish.

The Reds manager is of firm belief that the 23-year old, £35million striker is in good enough form to contribute to the Three Lions' cause in Poland and Ukraine or at least represent Team Great Britain at the London Olympics.

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

"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.

"I am not going to pick either Stuart Pearce's or Roy's team but if you want to play for your national side - and he does - or the Olympics - and he would do if he was picked - the best way to is to produce the goods on the pitch.

"The players will be judged by the performances and the better they play the more chance they have got."
