West Brom boss Clarke delighted to see Foster back in England fold

Steve Clarke admits West Bromwich Albion are thrilled with Ben Foster's recall to the England squad.

Roy Hodgson has called up the 29-year old for World Cup qualifiers with San Marino and Montenegro later this month and Clarke was happy to see his number one, who has been under a self-imposed international exile, back in the Three Lions setup.

"We're all delighted for Ben," said Clarke. "He obviously made himself available for selection and he explained his reasons for pulling out initially.

"It's good. I like my players to be involved for their countries because I think it's a great honour. It was a disappointment for me that I only got to represent Scotland six times at senior level. So for the players who do get selected to play for their country, it's great.

"I'm sure he'll do well."
