Foster set for England start

Former Potters' academy keeper, Ben Foster is set to earn his first England cap in tomorrow's friendly against Spain.

Foster joined Manchester United for 1m in the summer of 2005 without ever playing a first team match for Stoke and was immediately loaned out to Watford where he helped them gain promotion to the Premiership at the end of last season. Ferguson has allowed him to remain at Watford this season and he was named as the backup England keeper for the World Cup last summer.

Stoke stand to earn a large payout from Man United when he finally makes his first competitive appearance in an England shirt. That and other appearance bonuses could push his transfer fee up to 3m in the coming years.

Few fans will doubt his ability to become the first choice keeper at both Old Trafford and Wembley in the not too distant future.
