Newcastle striker Carroll has ankle worry

Newcastle United striker Andy Carroll is out of England's U21 European Championship qualifiers.

The 20-year-old frontman, who has scored four goals in three games since Newcastle's return to the Barclays Premier League, is ruled out of Stuart Pearce's squad with an ankle injury.

Carroll had been touted for a possible call-up to Fabio Capello's senior squad after making such an impressive impact, including a hat-trick in the 6-0 demolition of Aston Villa but he is the latest high profile casualty forced to pull out of this week's international duties.
