Norwich City striker Grant Holt is backing Southampton rival Ricki Lambert for an England call.

Lambert has scored four league goals for Southampton this term.

"He's scoring the goals," the Carlisle-born player added. "He's done well. But I think any neutral looking at that list (the latest England squad) could have written it down beforehand and not been far off.

"Unless Rickie Lambert scores 25 goals or bags 10 in the next two months I don't think he'll get close."
