"He's a great lad around the training ground, coaches love working with him, but by living the way he is he's not fulfilling the potential that he could possibly fulfil by having just a bit of a quieter life."
The 6ft 3in Newcastle forward has impressed the likes of
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger
this season and has a strong chance of being picked by Capello for the friendly against France on Wednesday 17 November, especially with fellow strikers Wayne Rooney, Jermain Defoe and Darren Bent injured.
He also pleaded guilty to a separate assault charge after an incident at a Newcastle nightclub and was fined £1,000.
Carroll scored the winner in Sunday's victory over Arsenal
Carroll's former England Under-21 team-mate and Arsenal forward Theo Walcott believes the Newcastle striker will get his international chance "sooner rather than later".
"He's shown he can do it in the Premier League and he's a fantastic prospect," Walcott told BBC Sport.
"He's a handful to play against and I'm sure if he gets the opportunity he will take it with both hands."
Newcastle team-mate Joey Barton has urged Capello to judge Carroll on his form, saying: "Sometimes you need the players who don't always toe the line.
"Hopefully they will stop worrying about Goody Two Shoes image which the sponsors want for England.
"They need to start picking players to win matches. The frustrating thing for me is that England pick the good guys for the World Cup because they won't cause any problems, but every other national team picks the players who are simply the best in their position.
"I'm not telling Fabio Capello how to do his job, but for me it is a no-brainer to have Andy Carroll in his squad because he has everything to be the archetypal English centre-forward."
