So, Bobby Zamora. He used to be shit, now he’s not. Quite a transformation for the ex-Brighton and Spurs striker. Uncle Woy Hodgson seems to have got the best out of Row Z, but could Capello do the same?

I have been impressed not just by Zamora’s improved finishing, but also by his general play – he’s arguably the best hold-up man England has, even if Emile Heskey seemingly can do no wrong (even when he’s not playing for Villa), but I have doubts about his quality and composure at the very highest level; whereas Heskey is proven and should be very fresh after a light season. That said, I would like to see Zamora given a chance in one of England’s pre-World Cup friendlies. Who knows? He might turn out to be Geoff Hurst 2.0?

Is Fulham’s in-form target man good enough to make your England 23 for South Africa? You know what to do by now…
