There is some breaking news that The Sun is reporting, that Andy Carroll has been forced to pull out of the England squad with a groin injury.
Andy Carroll – out 2 weeks with groin injury
The Newcastle striker, 21, was ready to make his England debut against France on Wednesday night, but it seems he picked up a groin strain in yesterday’s match against Fulham.
West Ham’s Carlton Cole has been called up to replace Andy in the England squad.
This is bad news for Newcastle, as we already have Joey Barton banned for 3 games and Cheick Tiote picked up his 5th yellow card yesterday and will also miss the game at Bolton this Saturday.
It seems like our best players are going down like nine pins for one reason or another.
This is very unfortunate for Andy, but we remember when he was left out of the last England squad, he also would have been unable to play, having picked up a minor injury the weekend before.
But this time it seems he will be out for at least a couple of weeks.
