Does Andy Carroll really deserve a place at Euro 2016?

The current 2015/16 Premier League campaign may admittedly remain in full metaphorical swing at this undeniably crucial stage of the season, but as Roy Hodgson’s Three Lions squad will obviously see themselves stepping out onto the hallowed turf once again this summer, now would seemingly represent an ideal time to get thinking about Euro 2016…

 

As West Ham’s towering centre-forward in the shape of Andy Carroll, has nonetheless begun to hit top form at this albeit rather late instalment of the 2015/16 campaign – should Hodgson think twice before re-calling the former Newcastle striker to the first team fold for England, or would the Three Lions ultimately fare far better without the notorious front-man involved?

 

Well, although the current England head-coach has possibly decided to look beyond Andy Carroll once again this summer…

 

 

…not every Three Lions football fan seemingly agrees with such a negative stance on the 27-year-old front-man…

 

 

Whilst some within the wider English footballing community have nonetheless seen fit to cast the West Ham United striker aside once Euro 2016 finally comes around…

 

 

…several Hammers fans have predictably taken on a different perspective this season…

 

 

The 'Andy Carroll for England' debate is one that just won’t seem to disappear however…

 

 

…and although the big man would undoubtedly provide England with a unique set of qualities should he eventually be selected for Euro 2016 this summer…

 

 

…most regular Premier League watchers aren’t entirely convinced right in the here and now…

 

 

If Roy Hodgson continues to look past Carroll in the run up to the highly anticipated summer competition though, let's all collectively hope that the much maligned England boss doesn't live to regret such a bold decision…
