Gary Hooper has said that he will work to maintain his form hoping that Roy Hodgson will take note, after starring in Celtic’s 3-2 win over Spartak Moscow in the Champions League.
Hooper scored the opener as Celtic won their first ever group stage match on foreign soil, prompting manager Neil Lennon to describe his performance as “world class”.
The striker said he would try to bring himself back down to earth but was hopeful that England would give him an opportunity.
"After the performance and the gaffer saying that, it feels really good”, he said.
"I have to try to take myself down and go again on Sunday."
"I want to play for England but is it not my decision, it is out my hands,
"I have to keep doing it on the field, like I did tonight, and against Raith and Motherwell recently and hopefully on Sunday and let them (England) decide."
Hooper emphasised the significance of Celtic’s result in Moscow, which was sealed by a late Georgios Samaras goal.
"It was a massive result," he said.
"We weren't favourites, people said Spartak should win easily but we got the three points.
"We started okay but Spartak got the ball down and passed it well.
"But we caught them on the counter-attack and with what I think was my third touch, I scored.
"I had a goal disallowed although I don't know if I was offside or not.
"The red card changed the game but we still had to put the ball in the net and we did well to do that."
