KENNY DALGLISH reckons Andy Carroll is doing his best to make a late run into England’s Euro 2012 squad.The Liverpool boss is confident the Geordie striker will start next season better than the current one whether or not he makes either Roy Hodgson’s squad or Team GB’s Olympic team.
Carroll’s form has improved dramatically in the last few weeks and on Tuesday he gave former Three Lions skipper John Terry the runaround in the 4-1 win over Chelsea.
And Dalglish thinks the £35million record signing has finally settled in at Anfield.
He said: “Andy will benefit from the fact he has been here for a year and has not had any problems with injuries.
“But the quality in the last couple of games has been fantastic and he has been building up to that for the whole season.
“I’m sure he will come back next season very much encouraged by his performances and starting afresh.
“We don’t know what is going to happen with Andy yet — whether he is going to be away with England in the championships or chosen for the Olympics.
“I am not going to pick either Stuart Pearce’s or Roy’s team but if you want to play for your national side — and he does — or the Olympics — and he would do if he was picked — the best way to is to produce the goods on the pitch.
“The players will be judged by the performances and the better they play the more chance they have got.”
Manchester United have contacted the FA to state none of their over-age players apart from Ryan Giggs would be available for this summer’s Olympics.
Only those not selected for the Euros will be considered by Pearce and while clubs don’t have to release players, Dalglish is happy for any members of his squad to accept a call-up.
