Anfield hero will make big impact at Millennium Stadium.
England defender Glen Johnson believes Andy Carroll will explode onto the international scene and scare the opposition into defeat.
The most expensive British player in history will lead the line against Wales in the Euro 2012 qualifier on Saturday after making his debut against France last November.
The 22-year-old has started Liverpool’s last two games after injury and his Anfield team-mate knows the six-foot-four striker is more than just a target-man.
“He scares the life out of opposition defences,” Johnson said.
“Everyone sees Andy as a big target man, who can hold the ball up. But there is far more to his game than that.
“He is always an outlet. You can stretch the play by giving it to him and he scores goals. Defenders just do not like the way he plays.
“He has caught me by surprise with his development but in football your life can change very quickly.
“There is no doubt he can make a big impact.”
