Andy Carroll will not feature for England next week

Andy Carroll has pulled out of England's opening World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine.

The West Ham loan signing suffered a hamstring injury during an impressive debut in his side's 3-0 win over Fulham on Saturday afternoon.

Manager Sam Allardyce said after the game it was unlikely Carroll would be able to join up with the England squad and he FA have confirmed that, although no decision will be made about replacements until after Sunday's three Barclays Premier League games have been played.
