Ben Foster on World Cup standby

Ben Foster on World Cup standby

Former Stoke City Academy player, Ben Foster has been selected to be the standby England keeper after Robert Green had to withdraw after being injured in the England B team's 2-1 defeat against Belarus.

Foster signed for Manchester United last July but was quickly sent on a season long loan to Watford, where he played a major part in their success in reaching the Premiership via the play-off final last weekend.

It's a major accolade for the 23 year old, who never played in a first team game for Stoke and only played his first Championship match at the start of this season.

Now, which was the record label that turned down the Beetles again? That said, i do hope he goes onward & upward, with all the sell-on clauses, aren't we in for about £3m?

How can a player who is not playing for his club be selected as a England standby, are we that hard up for Keepers.

He spent most of last season on loan from Stoke at Wrexham, where he collected a LDV cup winners medal, spent all of this season on loan at Watford and went up into the Prem with them. I agree its odd he has never played yet for either club he has been signed up with, but that's not a bad record, is it?

Decca turned down the Beatles. Can we have Ben? Sounds very handy.

He's a great little keeper and i'm sure will break through to be an england regular in the future.
