BOBBY Zamora is ready to grab his chance with both hands if he's handed an opportunity against Spain on Saturday.
The Fulham frontman will be looking to add to his one England cap when the Three Lions take on the World Cup winners at Wembley.
And he insists he's desperate to force his way into Fabio Capello's plans for Euro 2012.
He said: “Every time I've been called up, I've felt it's an audition and an opportunity to prove myself with England.
"I've been around the squad for the last year or so and I'm hoping now to prove what I can do. The gaffer has had other priorities up to now.
“He had to make decisions to make sure we qualified, and they've clearly proved to be the right decisions. They've got us there, job done. So there are no qualms about that from me.
"But the attitude does feel a bit different for these games. It's an opportunity. A tough one against Spain, for sure, because it wouldn't look as if they've got too many weaknesses at all.
“As for myself, I know the manager has lots of options up front, even with Wayne's suspension. Gabby [Agbonlahor] is back, Peter Crouch is not off the scene, and Jermain [Defoe] scored another instinctive one against us on Sunday, reminding the manager he's a goalscorer.
“There are people there desperate to play, so it's a case of making an impact if and when I get a chance. If I get that opportunity, I have to take it."
