Bobby Zamora capped a memorable ten days with his debut for the Three Lions, after his wife gave birth to twin girls last week.
The Fulham forward made his international bow coming on as a half-time substitute in England’s 2-1 victory over Hungary at Wembley, and the new father appeared content with his contribution to the national team.
“It’s been a crazy week, a very enjoyable week, so I’m chuffed with the whole ten days,” he told FATV.
The former Under-21 international made an impressive impact once he entered the fray, with two excellent efforts that would have made England’s margin of victory more comfortable.
His first effort was a sweetly struck left-foot volley that saw - after television replays - Gabor Kiraly in the Hungary goal tip the ball over the crossbar to safety. While his second chance was a header from around the six-yard box that once again witnessed the ‘keeper make a fine save.
“The header at the end was very unlucky, I think. The ‘keeper’s pulled off a great save, it even bounced as well which makes it even harder for the goalkeeper. But he pulled off a great save which would have probably capped off not a bad performance from myself,” said Zamora.
But not getting on the scoresheet did not dampen Zamora’s joy at making his first appearance for the Senior team.
“As a kid you always want to play for your country. Obviously watching over the years and seeing them play at the top level I’m chuffed to be included and get a run out.”
