Pic: Andy Carroll's cheeky message to Roy Hodgson

England manager Roy Hodgson named his 23 man squad for the World Cup yesterday and obviously a number of players were left disappointed. One of them was West Ham's Andy Carroll.

The Geordie battering ram has been named on the standby list in case one of the chosen strikers pick up an injury and big Andy is patiently waiting for the call in Dubai where he's on holiday with his girlfriend Billi Mucklow.


Billi is a fan of a selfie as you can see on her Instagram page and she snapped one of herself and Carroll with a caption 'There's no place I'd rather be'... but check out Andy's response at the bottom of the picture...


Carroll would obviously like to be going to Brazil with the England squad but his record of two goals in 15 games this season isn't exactly the form that would displace any of the four strikers on the plane; Wayne Rooney, Daniel Sturridge, Danny Welbeck or Rickie Lambert.
