West Ham United striker Andy Carroll hopes his goalscoring performance in victory over West Bromwich Albion gives England coach Roy Hodgson a nudge.

The on-loan Liverpool forward looked back to his best on Saturday, terrorising the West Brom defence in a vital 3-1 win which was watched by the England manager.

Carroll said: "I hope to play in every game for England but I've haven't been picked, so I've just got to work hard here at West Ham and hopefully I'll be involved next time.

"Obviously I like to score goals, so getting two shows that I've got it.

"I'm feeling good with the lads and everyone is coming together and we're playing well at home. It was a great win.

"The lads worked hard and I got my two goals and we got the three points, so it was a great day."
