Fulham striker Bobby Zamora is confident he will still be in Fabio Capello’s thoughts when he recovers from injury.

The Fulham striker is currently on the sidelines as he works his way back to full fitness after suffering a broken leg and ankle ligament damage against Wolves on 11th September.

Zamora is not expected to be back in action until February but believes further international recognition will come his way provided he finds his form again in front of goal for the Cottagers.

Capello handed the 29-year-old his England debut in the August friendly victory over Hungary and the former West Ham and Spurs striker feels he demonstrated that he warrants another chance.

“I think if I can go out and do well for Fulham then I don’t see any reason why not,” Zamora said.

“I definitely gave Fabio Capello a good picture of me when I was there and with the performance in the game I like to think I did enough to certainly be considered in the future.”

With Zamora and Jermain Defoe injured and Emile Heskey having retired from international football, Capello has handed Kevin Davies his first England call-up for the Euro 2012 qualifier against Montenegro on Tuesday.

And Zamora feels that the decision to include the 33-year-old Bolton striker shows that the Italian is open-minded when it comes to selecting his squad.

“I think it proves that he (Capello) is willing to try,” Zamora added.

“He’s looking at everybody as opposed to just going to Manchester United games, whoever they are playing, and watching Wayne Rooney.

“You can see he’s going all over the country and that’s good to know. It’s encouraging for everybody.”
