West Bromwich Albion Goalkeeper Ben Foster is not likely to accept the move to Manchester City to fill the space of an English player as third choice goalie.
Ben Foster conceded two goals in the match against Arsenal at the Emirates on Thursday. The game played in a relatively empty Emirates Stadium ended 2-0 for the Gunners.
The first goal came in the 6th minute when Alexis Sanchez received the ball from Mesut Ozil, avoided a challenge from Sandro and fired a powerful shot beyond the reach of Ben Foster. This was the goal that Emirates needed to lift the atmosphere.
The Blackburn Rovers have played a total of eleven games in the last five weeks and finally now, they have got some relief because of international break and Paul Lambert, the boss, is pretty pleased about it.
Rovers actually had a win at Griffin Park the other day which was their first on the ground of an opposition in a long time.
So, ideally, a manager would have liked the team to take that confidence and momentum ahead rather than being glad about the break, but, in this case, one can easily understand why Lambert is welcoming the break with both hands.
Salomon Rondon might be the person who is being talked about the most and is being praised for striking that lone goal in the Baggies’ previous win over Manchester United, but, according to the coach Tony Pulis, the contribution of Claudio Yacob shouldn’t go unnoticed as he is also somebody who did great work for the team in the playmaking department.
It was after a long duration of three decades that West Bromwich Albion won against the Red Devils at home and according to Pulis, it was Yacob who laid the platform of that historical win with his solid game in the midfield.
West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster says that he is extremely happy to see the progress made by Jack Butland of Stoke City.
The former Birmingham City goalkeeper has been playing for Mark Hughes into last few years and he has managed to establish as a first choice at the club following the departure of Asmir Begovic. He has been able to retain his spot in a Premier League team despite intense competition and his lack of experience. This says a lot about his quality and it has not gone unnoticed at the international level, asButland is set to be named as the reserve goalkeeper for Joe Hart at the Euro 2016.
West Brom manager Tony Pulis failed to deliver a return date for goalkeeper Ben Foster, who has been on the sidelines for a long time due to an anterior cruciate ligament.
The former Manchester United goalkeeper is the backup to Joe Hart in the England national team. He was expected to travel with the squad for the Euro 2016, but that has now been put under major doubt due to his failure to even come back to training. At 32 years of age, this may very well be the last opportunity forFoster to appear in a major international tournament.
England striker Harry Kane says that he is finally over the lean spell which saw him go more than 10 matches without a league goal.
The striker’s only previous goal in the league so far this season came via a deflected effort against Manchester City. This has led to many questioning the quality of the 22-year-old. Manager Mauricio Pochettino has maintained that Kane will return to form irrespective of the struggles in front of goal. His statement was finally proved right after the youngster scored a hat-trick against Bournemouth on Sunday.
England’s reserve goalkeeper Ben Foster is targeting a return to first-team action before October.
This is likely to see him remain in contention for the Euro 2016 spot. Foster has not played first-team football since suffering a major knee injury while playing for West Brom back in March. He suffered a ligament injury in the 1-0 win over Stoke City. Even though he has not been a regular first-team player for England, the opportunity to be part of the squad as the reserve to Joe Hart will be something that Foster will find it difficult to turn down.
The chances of Ben Foster recapturing his England squad in the immediate future have been in major not due to a serious knee injury that he suffered last season.
The West Brom goalkeeper was seen as the ideal replacement for Joe Hart in the event of an injury or suspension. The Manchester City star is the number one choice for Roy Hodgson going into the Euro 2016 next summer. Foster has to return to the starting line-up quicker than expected in order to rediscover his form. Only then can he imagined about being in the England squad for the finals in France. England are expected to be one of the best teams of Euro 2016, with the bookies making them third favourites.
England manager Roy Hodgson says that he is left devastated with the news that West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster could be out for up to 6 months after being diagnosed with an anterior cruciate ligament injury.
