Newcastle's Carroll delighted with England U21 goals

Newcastle United striker Andy Carroll was delighted with his brace for England U21 in their 6-3 victory over Macedonia last week.

Carroll was making his full debut and told the Evening Chronicle: "Goals are very important for me for Newcastle and England.

"I came off the bench last month for England and I just wanted to get a start and show them what I can do - I think I achieved that. The game was all over the place - it was level at 2-2, then 3-3, but to get the two goals was brilliant for me.

"I thought I did OK, and to get the man-of-the-match award was brilliant. To score against Macedonia was important for me.

"I hadn't scored in the last couple of games for Newcastle, and it's a great feeling to score for your country.

"Scoring goals is important for any striker."
