Impressive Carroll 3/1 to make World Cup
Andy Carroll showed on Monday night against Sunderland why he is so highly rated by some in the game with a goal and an assist for West Ham. However, he is still a lengthy best price of 3/1 with Sky Bet to return to the England squad and make it to the World Cup.
The 25-year-old opened the scoring for the Hammers against the Black Cats and then set up Mohamed Diame for the second and proved what a handful he can be for defenders after a season heavily hampered by injury.
The Geordie striker already has nine England caps, scoring two goals, and SkyBet are offering the tempting 3/1 that he will have the chance to win some more by making it into the World Cup squad.
It has been Southampton’s Rickie Lambert that has fulfilled the target-man role in recent squads and he remains more likely to make it into the final squad according to the bookies at 9/4 with Bet Victor.
Also on the scoresheet at the Stadium of Light on Monday night was Adam Johnson who has been linked with an England return as well. However, the bookies see this as unlikely with the former Middlesbrough man out at 10/1 with Betfred to make the final cut.
