Holt: I'll never get an England call

Norwich City striker Grant Holt has hit out at England manager Roy Hodgson, saying he believes he should have been called up after scoring 15 Premier League goals last season.

Holt, 31, said he felt Hodgson was too resistant to change and that he would never be selected for his country despite his recent form.

The striker - Norwich's Player of the Year for three successive seasons - got off the mark for this season as the Canaries were beaten 5-2 at home by Liverpool.

He said: "He [Hodgson] hasn't given anyone opportunities - people like Nathan Dyer and Danny Graham from Swansea didn't even get a look-in, but that's life.

"I think I'll never be in it. Roy's come in and is picking his players. When two friendlies came up and I wasn't included... it was ridiculous, to be honest.

"But I think any neutral looking at that list [England's squad] could have written it down beforehand and not been far off."

Holt said he believed Rickie Lambert of Southampton, another striker to impress on his first taste of Premier League action, would also face a battle to be called up.

"He's scoring the goals. He's done well," the Canaries' skipper said. "Unless Rickie Lambert scores 25 goals or bags 10 in the next two months, I don't think he'll get close."
