Fulham manager Martin Jol has called on striker Bobby Zamora to become more prolific if he wants to be included in Fabio Capello's England squad for Euro 2012.

The Cottagers frontman put in a hard-working display but failed to find the back of the net as Jol's men claimed a point in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Arsenal.

That encounter left Zamora without a goal in six Premier League games, while he has not scored on the road since August 2010.

England boss Capello is thought to be considering the 30-year-old as an option to lead the line in place of Wayne Rooney at the European Championship next summer, with the Manchester United striker suspended for the first three group games.

But Jol believes Zamora must become more productive if he wants to make the cut for Poland and Ukraine.

The Cottagers boss told The Sun: "Bobby is brilliant as a No 9. He is a specific type of player, a target man who is one of our main strengths.

"Whether he goes with England to the European Championships depends on what you want.

"As a striker, you have to score goals and I hope Bobby can be a bit more productive. We have to believe in ourselves and score goals at the right moments."
