West Ham boss Allardyce wants England to be careful with Carroll

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce is reluctant to see Andy Carroll selected for England.

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce is reluctant to see Andy Carroll selected for England.

England boss Roy Hodgson saw Carroll return from a month out with a hamstring injury as a sub in West Ham’s 2-1 win at QPR.

Carroll could feature when Hodgson names his squad on Thursday for the World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Poland.

But boss Allardyce warned: “Andy’s woefully short of match practice — I’m sure Roy will deal with that in the right way.”
