Foster rules out international return
Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster has ruled out any chance of him breaking back into the England squad.
Following the midweek defeat to Spurs, Foster became a record breaker with the most saves in the Premier League since records began back in 2006, although he is unsure whether that is a good or bad thing to have next to his name.
He said: "I don’t know whether that’s a good thing or not to be honest, it shows I have been a busy goalie throughout my career and also I’m very old."
Meanwhile his form has led to some people putting his name forward for a place in the England squad, but, at 35, Foster says he is too old for a return to international football now.
Foster, who has eight England caps, told the Observer: "No, I’m so old for English football and my knees have got no chance of holding up any international football, as well as club football especially in the summer as well.
"That’s the best time, you can just take a total relax from football and not have to worry about that. It’s something I need to do to have more longevity at club level.
"When the chance comes to go away with my family, I would rather do that."
