Man Utd midfielder Carrick proud of England captaincy

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick was proud to wear the England captain's armband after victory over Italy.

England came from behind to triumph thanks to goals from Phil Jagielka and Jermain Defoe.

Carrick said: "It was special for me to play after so long since I wore the jersey.

"To be captain for the first time in the final part of the game as well also made me feel proud."

Carrick's last appearance was in May 2010 against Mexico.
