With England's first World Cup fixtures only six months away, an early return from injury provides an added opportunity to impress Hodgson, who Foster revealed has been kept well-informed throughout his recovery.
"I spoke to Roy [Hodgson] when I first got injured," he added. "He was actually at the game when I did it and then gave me a call to say how unlucky I was.
"He's been kept up to date with things. Up until a month ago we were looking at January until I got back to full fitness.
"But I have progressed a lot quicker which is a bonus."
