Ben Foster on England stand-by

Ben Foster on England stand-by

Ben Foster has been placed on stand-by for England’s 2006 World Cup squad.

Watford’s on-loan ‘keeper from Manchester United has been placed on stand-by for the England World Cup squad following an injury to Robert Green, Liverpool stopper Scott Carson has been drafted into the full squad in place of Green.

Norwich keeper and England third-choice Robert Green sustained a groin injury during England’s ‘B’ side’s 2-1 defeat at the hands of Belarus at the Madejski stadium on Thursday evening.

Foster, who has been earning rave reviews for Watford this season, has improved every time he has put on a Watford jersey, culminating in four successive clean sheets for the Golden Boys including in the play-off final victory over Leeds United at the Millennium Stadium.

It is easy to see why Sir Alex Ferguson paid Stoke City £1 million for Foster a year ago and Watford boss Aidy Boothroyd is hoping to keep the 23-year-old on loan at Vicarage Road for another for Watford’s Premiership campaign.

Boothroyd recently stated that he believed that Foster would go on to play for England.

That may happen sooner than both Boothroyd and Foster thought.

He is a quality keeper. You'll do well to keep him on loan for next season.

He'll stay another season and then i reckon that Man Utd will assess his suitability for the premiership.
