West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Ben Foster has revealed England manager Roy Hodgson has been watching his progress with the World Cup just months away. 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."
