Andy Carroll hopes his impressive brace against West Brom will persuade Roy Hodgson that he deserves an England recall this summer.
Carroll has endured a difficult time at Upton Park since he joined on loan from Liverpool last August, but the 24-year-old looked back to his best against West Brom.
– Andy Carroll, speaking to West Ham TV
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.
I was putting myself about and got two goals, so that's what I like to think I'm about. 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.
