Carra: Enrique deserves international call-up

Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has praised new signing Jose Enrique and, despite the former Newcastle left-back missing out on facing England this weekend, believes he will soon be playing for Spain.

"He's settled in really well, you can see that in his performances. He mixes in well with the lads, has a laugh and a joke.

"I'm very surprised he hasn't had a Spain call-up. It makes you realise how strong Spain must be, because I can't think of a left-back who's performed better than him at this stage of the season.

"You wonder what they've got at left-back, but if he keeps performing the way he is he's got a chance of getting in for the Euros in the summer.

"Spain are a great team but their weak position is left-back. That is a position that's up for grabs, so with the way he's playing for a top club, he deserves a chance."
