Carroll to Miss England World Cup Qualifiers With Leg Injury

Sept. 1 (Bloomberg) -- West Ham striker Andy Carroll pulled out of the England soccer team’s first two World Cup qualiyfing matches with a leg injury.

Carroll, who joined West Ham on loan from Liverpool earlier this week, left the second half of today’s 3-0 Premier League win over Fulham with a hamstring injury.

The Football Association said on its website that a decision on a replacement won’t be made until after tomorrow’s three Premier League games. Danny Welbeck, Jermain Defoe and Daniel Sturridge are the other strikers on the England roster.

England opens qualifying for the 2014 World Cup in Moldova on Sept. 7 and hosts Ukraine four days later.
