Foster was delighted to accept Hodgson's recall and reports the former West Brom boss is a winner with the England players.
He said: "He's exactly the same as he was when he was at West Brom. It's nice to see he is still the same.
"He's a top, top guy and a top coach. You can just see how well the lads have taken to him as well.
"He's always the same in training and, if he's not happy with the session, he will bring the lads in for a little huddle.
"As soon as he opens his mouth, the lads listen to every single word he says.
"Everybody appreciates and knows he knows football like the back of his hand."
