West Ham forward Carroll confident of making England's World Cup squad

West Ham forward Carroll confident of making England's World Cup squad”

And, while England qualified comfortably for Russian Federation 2018, their play was often criticised as uninspiring, and it has been suggested that Carroll's aerial ability and physical prowess might come in useful come the tournament.

Obiang says the Hammers' squad not on global duty were put through their paces over the two-week domestic break as Slaven Bilic's side aim to record back-to-back wins following the victory over Swansea last month.

Asked if he can be a force at global level, Carroll added: "Definitely".

"I think they will find it hard to get all three points at Burnley, but a point, preferably with a clean sheet would show that they have a little more resolve than they displayed in the early weeks of the season". I've done pre-season with Gladbach, I feel good and ready, I'm just waiting for my opportunity.

"I am fully confident of my ability".

The Hammers have a number of strikers at the club right now, with Javier Hernandez, Diafra Sakho and Carroll himself, but West Ham may also want to bring in a young striker to develop over the coming years. "So, we took time and now I'm close to being ideal".

"It's a motivation and it's the same for Andy Carroll".

West Ham's co-owner David Sullivan certainly thinks highly of the Senegal striker, telling him he is too integral to the team's future to be sold, and that certainly seems to be the case with his recent rich vain of form as they aim to move away from the bottom three.

"I watched the second England game because of Aaron Cresswell, but Andy needs to concentrate on club football, because only by playing well for West Ham will he force Gareth Southgate to give him a call".
