Celtic striker Gary Hooper has his sights set on an England call-up, and has urged Three Lions boss Fabio Capello to come to Scotland and see him play reports The Sun.
The 23-year-old is hoping that a good performance in tonight's UEFA Europa League encounter against Udinese will help raise his profile, and go a long way to helping him break into the national set-up.
England legend Terry Butcher last week called for Capello to give the Celtic striker a chance, and upon hearing that, Hooper reflected positively on his chances of gaining international recognition while playing at Parkhead.
"Do I think it's possible to get into the England set-up while I'm playing for Celtic? Yeah I do," he said. "If you score goals it's going to get back to England.
"I've just got to keep scoring well and helping Celtic win games in Europe. Scoring goals in Europe will help. It is a different stage because you are against more technical opponents, and better teams.
"I feel ready to play for England — that's the aim. The main thing is playing for Celtic, winning games and scoring goals. It would be nice if Fabio Capello came and watched me."
Bhoys boss Neil Lennon is a big fan of Hooper - who has scored 24 goals in 33 games for Celtic since moving to Celtic Park from Scunthorpe last summer.
