Manchester United legend Teddy Sheringham has hailed the form of Michael Carrick.

Carrick faces his told club Tottenham today.

Sheringham told the Mail on Sunday: "I played with Michael Carrick for two weeks at West Ham, long enough for me to realise he is outstanding. People who read the game like him and make it look easy are invaluable.

"He’ll be at United for the next five years and it’s not too late for England to use him properly. I watched him against Spain and every time he looked to pass it, all the other players were running away from him. I felt so sorry for him because he had nothing on."
