Foster out of England squad
Monday 10 August 2009
Goalkeeper Ben Foster has withdrawn from the England squad ahead of Wednesday's friendly international against Holland, due to a minor injury.
The Manchester United player took a slight knock during the Community Shield match against Chelsea at Wembley yesterday.
Joe Hart, currently on a season-long loan from Manchester City to Birmingham, has been called up as a replacement for Foster.
Twenty-six-year-old Foster has made just two appearances for England, both in friendlies, making his debut in February 2007 in a home defeat against Spain. He returned in the 4-0 home win over Slovakia in March.
Foster's withdrawal leaves Hart, Paul Robinson and Robert Green as England's goalkeepers.
