Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway claims that Wilfried Zaha is "unique" and that the 20-year-old forward is unlike anyone he has worked with in his career.

Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway has described forward Wilfried Zaha as "unique".

The 20-year-old has been called up to the England squad for their friendly international against Sweden in Stockholm on Wednesday.

"He is so unique," Holloway wrote in The Mirror. "He is an untouched, pure talent. I've never worked with anyone like him - he just wants to get the ball and beat people, however many there are, he can do it.

"Before I got to Palace, I was hearing a lot about this boy and I thought, 'Is he better than anybody else?'

"Now I have seen him. Good gracious me, it is quite unbelievable what he can do, and hopefully, a lot of fans around the country will see him still progress because it is so pure."

Zaha has scored four goals in nine appearances in the Championship so far this season.
