Man Utd's Carrick urges media not to hype up England kids

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has urged the media not to hype up the youngsters breaking into the England squad.

Carrick accepts a more measured view of younger players has to be taken, laughing out loud when asked if, following the inclusions of Andros Townsend and Ross Barkley in Hodgson's latest squad, England now had a new 'golden generation'.

"It goes from one extreme to the other," he said.

"I see an awful lot of talent but it is easy to get carried away.

"You need to have a balanced view."
