The 25-year-old frontman finally arrived in the Premier League over the summer following many windows of intense transfer speculation.

Norwich were the ones to lure Hooper away from Celtic, with big money paid for a proven marksman.

Injuries have prevented him from making the early impact he had been hoping for at Carrow Road, but a brace in a Capital One Cup tie at Watford on Tuesday has him up and running.

Hooper is now determined to kick on with new employers and earn the international recognition which has been mooted for some time.

He said: "It's early days but everyone wants to play for their country.

"I just have to get on the pitch in the Premier League and start scoring. That's the next step.

"It has been frustrating with the injury at Norwich. But I had a calf problem when I first signed for Celtic and that worked out all right in the end.

"I need to keep scoring because that's my job. If I can keep scoring like I did at Celtic, then it will be a good few years."

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
