On-loan West Ham striker Andy Carroll hopes that his brace against West Brom on Saturday caught the eye of England boss Roy Hodgson.
The 24-year-old has struggled to settle since joining on loan from Liverpool in the summer, scoring just five times, although he has spent an extended period on the sidelines with injuries.
But the former Newcastle man - who moved to Anfield for a fee of £35million - believes that his double against the Baggies at the weekend will send a message to the England manager.
Hodgson overlooked the striker during his last selection process for the 2014 World Cup Qualification games against San Marino and Montenegro.
"I hope to play in every game for England but I haven't been picked so I've just got to work hard here at West Ham and hopefully I'll be involved next time," Carroll said.
"I was putting myself about and got two goals (against West Brom), so that's what I like to think I'm about. Obviously I like to score goals, so getting two shows that I've got it. I'm feeling good with the lads."
