Zoltan Gera thinks that his team-mate, Bobby Zamora, fully deserves his call-up from Fabio Capello.
According to Gera, Zamora's performance last season in which he scored 19 goals, merits his call-up to the England side and Gera insists that Zamora should get a chance to play.
If Zamora does get picked for England's friendly against Hungary on Wednesday, the two Fulham team-mates could face each other as Gera is a Hungary international.
Both are senior players but Gera says, 'I don’t think it matters how old you are, if you play well and show you deserve to play'.
Gera scored a hat-trick in Fulham's 5-1 victory against Werder Bremen and says playing England will be a great opportunity for his country, 'England are still a good team. But it’s a great chance for us. We have a new manager and a new squad with younger players'.
