Carroll ruled out of England qualifiers
07:13 AEST Sun Sep 2 2012

West Ham striker Andy Carroll has been ruled out of England's World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine after suffering a hamstring injury during Saturday's 3-0 win over Fulham.

Carroll made a strong debut for the Hammers after his loan move from Liverpool, but his first appearance at Upton Park was marred when he limped off midway through the second half.

Hammers boss Sam Allardyce feared the 23-year-old was unlikely to be fit in time for England's opening qualifier in Moldova on Friday and the clash with Ukraine at Wembley the following week.

And the Football Association confirmed later on Saturday that Carroll had been forced to withdraw from the squad.

"West Ham United forward Andy Carroll has withdrawn from the England squad to face Moldova and Ukraine," a statement on the FA's website read.

"After picking up an injury in the match against Fulham, Carroll will not be part of the squad for England's opening FIFA World Cup qualifying matches next week."

Carroll had been expected to feature heavily in England coach Roy Hodgson's plans for the two matches after Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney was ruled out with a thigh gash.

Hodgson will now wait until after Sunday's fixtures involving Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester United, Southampton, Newcastle and Aston Villa before deciding who to call up as Carroll's replacement.
