Fulham boss Roy Hodgson says that striker Bobby Zamaroa is good enough to play for England at the World Cup finals in South Africa.
The former Switzerland coach saw the ex England under-21 player score his sixth goal of the season on Sunday in Fulham’s 1 – 0 win over Sunderland at Craven Cottage.
The former Brighton, Spurs and West Ham player stands 6 foot tall and Hodgson believes his physical presence and technical ability could be used to England’s advantage of the international stage, possibly as an alternative to Emile Heskey.
Explaining his thinking, Hodgson said:
You could make a case for one or two more unusual selections, players who have something a bit extra.
If you perpetuated that argument, you might come up with an argument for someone like a Bobby Zamora.
He is the type of player who we don’t have too many like in the English Premiership.
Heskey is a very powerful player, a very willing player and a hard-working player. Bobby is more technical.
