Three Lions must take a chance on big attacker, says Allardyce.
England should recall giant front man Andy Carroll to the national setup according to the man who is currently coaching the player at club level, says the Sun.
The 24-year-old is at present spending a season-long loan spell at West Ham United after being deemed surplus to requirements by parent club Liverpool.
And Hammers head coach Sam Allardyce has called upon England manager Roy Hodgson to bring Carroll back into the international fold after an encouraging year in east London.
The Pony-tailed Geordie has not featured for his country since last summer’s European Championship in Poland and Ukraine, where his only start came in the Three Lions’ group-stage fixture with Sweden, when Carroll scored an eye-catching header in England’s 3-2 win.
However, that goal is one of only two that the striker has managed in his so far fledgling international career which amounts to just nine caps in three years.
