Celtic keeper Fraser Forster called up to England’s World Cup squad


Fraser Forster has been called up by Roy Hodgson as part of England’s 23-man squad for this summer’s World Cup in Brazil. The Geordie was on of three keepers selected, the other two being Man City’s Joe Hart and West Brom’s Ben Foster.

Forster took the twitter, after the announcement, saying: “Thank you for all the messages! Delighted to be part of the England World Cup squad.”

Celtic manager, Neil Lennon added: “Fraser deserves to be in it as he’s good enough and his performances over the last three seasons have just improved all the time. It’s a huge feather in his cap and great for the club.”

Forster joined Celtic on loan in 2010 from Newcastle United, spending the next two seasons at Parkhead, where he won the Scottish Cup and League title. He made the move permanent in July 2012 and his performances in the Champions League earned him many plaudits both sides of the border and on the continent.

The Geordie earned his one and only cap to date against Chile in November last year.
