Sam Allardyce tipped Andy Carroll to win back his place in the England squad after watching the striker fire West Ham to victory over Swansea.

Carroll's time at Upton Park has been blighted by inconsistent form and a knee injury that kept him out of the Hammers' starting line-up for two months.

Carroll was left out of England's squad to face Brazil next week, but his manager thinks the striker will be under consideration for the Three Lions' double-header against San Marino and Montenegro in March if his form continues to improve.

"He should (get back in)," the West Ham manager said."As long as he can stay fit between now and the end of the season, get as many games as he can (he will).
