Cape Town - West Ham captain Mark Noble feels that striker Andy Carroll has done enough to warrant a call-up to Roy Hodgson's England squad for Euro 2016.
The Hammers striker scored an eight-minute hattrick around half time against Arsenal on Saturday, prompting much speculation as to his possible inclusion in Roy Hodgson's England squad.
"Everybody knows what Andy is like, he is the best when the ball is in the box", Noble told West Ham's official website.
"When you cross the ball into him, he is simply unplayable at times," he added. "He should definitely be looked at for a place in the England squad."
Carroll's possible inclusion in the 23-man squad has not been without some high-profile opposition, however, with England legend Allan Shearer coming out as the most vocal.
The former Newcastle striker wrote in The Sun that Carroll's tendency to get injured should be a big enough concern for him not to be included.
"There is no doubt he would offer us a different option. I know the ability he has - when he gets the right delivery he is unplayable," wrote Shearer.
"But we have seen that ability for three or four games in a row before, then he goes and gets injured. That has always been the case with Andy and that is why, at this moment in time, he should not be considered for England."
Shearer did, however, add that while there are English strikers who are performing more consitently, Carroll should remain in contention.
"He has had one good game but plenty of other English strikers have been doing it all season and are rightly ahead of him. Yes, if he can stay fit and go on a scoring run for the next six games, the Euros question could maybe be asked again," he said.
