Newcastle striker Andy Carroll was on target as England Under-19s last night.
Andy Carroll – scored England’s 3rd goal last night
England won 3-1 against Russia at Milton Keynes on Tuesday night, and the Newcastle striker played 75 minutes before being replaced.
The 6′ 3″ striker went close to breaking the deadlock with an excellent shot early in the game, before finally getting a goal in the 64th minute from close range for Englandâ€™s third goal.
Local boy Ryan Donaldson played 79 minutes for the England Under-17s against France last night, as they were held to a 1-1 draw in their European Championships Qualifier in Tel Aviv, Israel.
The full England side play France in Paris tonight, and we have no idea if Michael Owen will play. But if he does play let’s hope, no let’s pray, that he doesn’t get injured.
