Grant Holt feels playing for Norwich could be hampering the international ambitions of several players at the club.

Holt, 30, has more goals to his name than the likes of Darren Bent, Fraizer Campbell, Daniel Sturridge and Danny Welbeck, all of whom were included in Stuart Pearce's experimental England squad for the friendly against Holland at Wembley.

Norwich goalkeeper John Ruddy was also overlooked in favour of veteran Robert Green, while playmaker Wes Hoolahan has yet to feature in the Republic of Ireland's plans ahead of Euro 2012 and Holt said: "Like anyone, the dream is to play for your country, some fulfil it, some don't. There are a lot of people [in our squad] disappointed."
