Brampton calling: Hoilett scores winner for Blackburn


Junior Hoilett’s hot streak for Blackburn Rovers continues. The best of the bunch when it comes to the legions of players from Brampton, Ont. got Blackburn through to the fourth round of the FA Cup, scoring from the top of the penalty area to give Rovers a 1-0 decision over Championship side Queens Park Rangers.

Saturday’s winner comes on the heels of a great performance against Liverpool in midweek; Hoilett beat defenders Glen Johnson and Martin Skrtel to set up the insurance marker in a 3-1 win.

Of course, Canadian fans are anxiously waiting to see if Junior will decide to represent Canada or not. He hasn’t committed to the national team yet, even though his brother Jaineil, who plays his club football in Germany, has played for various Canadian youth sides.

Junior has stated that he wants to establish himself in the Premiership before making the decision on whether or not to play internationally with Canada.

While Teal Bunbury’s decision to represent the United States over Canada hurts, that pain would be nothing compared to what would happen to the emotional state of Canadian soccer fans if Junior says no to the Canadian Soccer Association.
