Zamora for England?
After he put one past Sunderland then celebrated like a pitbull, Roy Hodgson might have got a touch carried away in his summation of the striker, Bobby Zamora. As reported in today’s Daily Mail, the manager said this:
“You could make a case for one or two more unusual selections, players who maybe have something a little bit extra. If you perpetuated that argument, you might come up with an argument for someone like Bobby Zamora.”
“There are plenty of players who don’t score a lot of goals who are good players. Emile Heskey is a very powerful player, a very willing player and a hard working player but Bobby is more technical.”
With the likes of Defoe, Heskey, Crouch, Owen, Carlton Cole, and Bent all way ahead of him in the pecking order, it’s unlikely to say the least. But in the spirit of democracy and free speech – and because Roy Hodgson seems like a nice guy – it’s a question that begs attention.
So… ahem… deep breath… Zamora for England?
