West Brom’s Foster determined to impress England boss Hodgson

West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Ben Foster has ended his self-imposed England exile and is looking to again impress manager Roy Hodgson.

The 29-year old has made himself available for national team selection after two years off the scene spent focusing on club football and he insists he feels in great shape to again have a crack at forcing his way into the Three Lions squad, this time under his former Albion boss.

"I spoke to Roy last week about England and he was very happy with it. I also spoke to the goalkeeper coach Dave Watson. I'm very happy with the decision,” he told the club’s official website.

"The main reason I've made the decision is my body really has improved a lot over the last few years - they're the best I've had.

"The kids are getting on for four and five now and starting school so I won't see them as much. That was the main reason behind it.

"Roy also knows what I'm about. He worked with me for a year at West Brom and he knows what he's going to get from me.

"He said 'there are a lot of good goalkeepers out there so go out there and show me you can get into the team.’

"You don't expect to walk straight back into the team but I'll take every game as it comes and go out there and look to do as well as I can for West Brom."
