Swansea's Williams eyeing showdown with Liverpool's Carroll

Swansea City defender Ashley Williams is excited about the challenge of taking on Liverpool centre-forward Andy Carroll this weekend.

The Swans host the Reds in the final game of the Premier League season and centre-back Williams has hinted that he will relish the contest with Carroll who has shown some strong form in recent outings.

"I've played against him a few times before and he looked really good on the TV the other night," said Williams.

"He's one of those players that if he decides he wants to have a good game, he will have a good game.

"I look forward to playing against him, but every week there's a top striker - that's the beauty of the Premier League.

"In my opinion, I would take him (to Euro 2012), but I'm not too bothered if he goes or not.

"If he plays Sunday it's an interesting game because one moment you're battling against him, then you have to play (Luis) Suarez who's really agile, quick and nimble.

"That's the beauty of it."
