Fulham boss Mark Hughes admits he has been taken aback by Bobby Zamora, labelling the England striker "quite a package".[LNB] Zamora made his senior international debut in the friendly against Hungary last month, but a thigh injury ruled him out of contention for the opening Euro 2012 qualifier with Bulgaria tomorrow.[LNB]The much-travelled 29-year-old has netted three goals in his four appearances with Fulham this season.[LNB]Hughes - who took over at Craven Cottage following Roy Hodgson's departure for Liverpool - believes there is more to come.[LNB]"When you come into a new situation you are not quite sure what you are getting, but Bobby is a top class Premier League striker," Hughes told the club's website. "His link-up play has impressed me and is better than people give him credit for.[LNB]"Bobby is quite a package and a threat. His link-up play and team work is excellent and he is a big factor in why we have started so brightly.[LNB]"He is very confident in his game and he is enjoying his work.[LNB]"At the moment he is able to transfer the work on the training ground on to the field of play and is playing really, really well."
