West Ham United No2 Neil McDonald is backing Andy Carroll for an England call.
McDonald believes he can add an Emile Heskey-like presence if picked for this monthâ€™s friendly against ÂRepublic of Ireland and the June 2 clash with Brazil.
â€śWhen youâ€™re in that form you should be considered for England,â€ť McDonald said.
â€śI think the perception with his size is that he is just a big target man, but he is much more.
â€śHeâ€™s not just a flick-it-up-and- hoof-it man â€“ he would give ÂEngland more options than just a big ball up top. Emile Heskey did that sort of role for Michael Owen.
â€śHeâ€™s more than a big lump and he does work at his game and is still a young man. He has gone to the top very quickly, but he is young and still learning.â€ť
