The 30 years old shot-stopper Ben Foster has been struggling with a broken foot that has left him not able to play for either his country or West Bromwich Albion as he picked up the injury in August and it’s been over 3 months that he has gotten back to the pitch due to his lengthy injury recovery.

Even though he has not played in quite some time and his recovery has not been completed, he is still excited about the chance of being in the England squad for the 2014 World Cup.

"The chance of being in the England squad and going to a World Cup in Brazil next summer is really exciting," said Foster, speaking to the Daily Telegraph.

"When the lads qualified last month, it was a great feeling, but I really can't let myself think about any of that at the moment. My foot needs to heal, I need to play and then we can think about England."

England secured their spot in the upcoming World Cup by finishing at the top of Group H and are now waiting for the draw to be done as long as the other nations.

Foster also went on talking about the recent downfall that Joe Hart is going through in Manchester City.

"He is one of the best goalkeepers I've ever played and trained with, he's just had a bit of a bad run.If I was his manager, I'd just put a big arm around him, tell him to go on holiday for a couple of weeks, clear his head, relax and then come back in the team and carry on doing what he's been doing for the last few years’’. Foster said.
"Class is permanent and Joe is top class."

The Romanian goalkeeper Costel Pantilmon is being a preferred option for Manuel Pellegrini as he has been featured in 5 of the last 6 matches for the Premier League club.
