England manager Roy Hodgson has suffered another blow with striker Andy Carroll being ruled out from his squad in the preparations for world cup qualifiers.

Carroll has been struggling with a heel injury after he was named in Roy Hodgson's squad and he has been ruled out for the duo England international friendly matches against Ireland at Wembley on May 29 and Brazil on June 2 at Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro.

The 24 year old spent last season on loan at Premier League West Ham United and it is reported that Liverpool has agreed a deal for him to join the London club permanently for £15 million.

Carroll joins Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard and Arsenal's Jack Wilshere in missing the two matches which are warm-ups for September's World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine.
