And Carroll, who struggled for large periods with Liverpool this season before rediscovering some form towards the back end of the season, was given the much sought-after number nine slot.
It is not the first time Carroll has been handed a significant number nine jersey with the tall striker impressing for Newcastle for the first half of the 2010/11 season wearing the iconic shirt.
Gareth Barry was ruled out of the tournament in Poland and Ukraine after suffering a tear to his lower abdomen in the 1-0 friendly win against Norway over the weekend.
Everton defender Phil Jagielka was called up as his replacement after manager Roy Hodgson said he would "re-configure" his squad should the Manchester City midfielder miss out.
Parker (Achilles), Welbeck (ankle) and Johnson (toe) had been doubts but it seems those problems have cleared up and they will report for duty at England's Watford base.
England's squad list and numbers for Euro 2012: 1 Joe Hart, 2 Glen Johnson, 3 Ashley Cole, 4 Steven Gerrard, 5 Gary Cahill, 6 John Terry, 7 Theo Walcott, 8 Frank Lampard, 9 Carroll, 10 Wayne Rooney, 11 Ashley Young, 12 Leighton Baines, 13 Robert Green, 14 Phil Jones, 15 Joleon Lescott, 16 Milner, 17 Parker, 18 Jagielka, 19 Stuart Downing, 20 Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, 21 Jermain Defoe, 22 Welbeck, 23 Jack Butland.
