The Canaries striker's sharp shooting tally last season saw him take scalps off Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Cheslea - scoring against the last three this campaign too.

Despite these statistics, the towering hitman has been overlooked by Roy Hodgson, with the England chief opting for youth up front in the midweek 4-2 defeat at Sweden.

However, a shining light for Holt is that fellow 31-year-old Leon Osman was given his first cap by Hodgson - a move which the big frontman took some optimism from in terms of his potential future selection.

"If you asked John Terry and Rio Ferdinand have they had a tough game when I've played against them, I'm sure they would answer yes," he told The Sun.

"If you're playing well, like Leon Osman is doing, then you should get called up.

"I've scored three in the last six games now. I'm up and running.

"If I keep scoring the goals and knocking on the door and it gets picked on form, then I won't be far off."

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
