Andy Carroll primed for Hammers return

Striker Andy Carroll is targeting a place in the England squad as he prepares to return to the West Ham side after a three-match suspension.

Howard Webb dismissed Andy Carroll during West Ham's victory.

The 25-year-old had only just made his comeback from a lengthy spell on the sidelines due to a foot injury when he was dismissed in the home clash with Swansea.

After an appeal, Carroll's ban was upheld at an independent arbitration panel which backed the Football Association's disciplinary appeals process.

But in his absence, West Ham have won three successive matches to ease their relegation fears and surge into the top half of the table. Carroll will be available again for Saturday's trip to Everton, but is taking nothing for granted.

"The sending-off has happened and I was annoyed at the time with missing games, which was not what I wanted after the season that I've had, but I'm over it now," Carroll said on the club's official website.

"I just need to focus on playing the games now and getting back in the team and playing games. I have just got to work hard in training, because that is all I can do. At the end of the day, the manager picks the team."

Carroll last featured for England in the 5-0 World Cup qualifying win over San Marino at Wembley in October 2012.

However, the 6ft 3in former Newcastle and Liverpool striker is determined to become part of Roy Hodgson's plans for Brazil this summer, having been tipped for a recall to the international squad in next week's friendly against Denmark.

"I have definitely not given up on the England squad and I never will do," he said.
