eldervo it was me that called them the holy trinity, now you see why because they always have to come together and rarely stand up for themselves. I wonder who's turn it is for the gimp mask tonight lol

It was revealed after the match that Foster had used an iPod to help with his preparations in the penalty shootout, prompting discussion about the use of technology in the game.[38]

"He's not selected me because he knows the situation with my knee so hopefully it can clear up sooner than later really.

At 28, Forster has a few more finals in him and so taking him to France could benefit England further down the line.

Jonny Evans and Gareth McAuley are nailed on for the Northern Ireland squad while James Chester and James McClean are strongly expected to earn call-ups from Wales and the Republic of Ireland respectively.

Foster was part of Hodgson’s squad before his injury but the England manager today named Joe Hart, Fraser Forster, and Tom Heaton as his three keepers in a 26-man squad due to be whittled down to 23 at a later date.

If Bournemouth don’t beat Manchester United in Tuesday night’s rearranged fixture, the club will finish in 14th.

I will not be surprised if Albion are on the lookout for a new top goalkeeper for next season, such is the game of football.

West Bromwich Albion stopper Ben Foster has virtually ruled himself out of England's Euro 2016 squad after revealing the painful extent of his ongoing knee problems.

"It's been a little bit topsy turvy the last month especially.

“There was a time when that happened for family reasons,” he said. “But I don’t think anyone can turn their back on the national team nowadays.

The 32-year-old had cruciate-ligament surgery in March and was expected to be back by October.

“It's ok, it's manageable, as long as I do manage it and I'm sensible and I don't go doing stupid things away from football.”

"I think, having spoken to Ben, the most important thing is for him to get fit and start playing for West Brom again and if the Euros come for him then brilliant," said the Baggies boss.

“It's low impact as well, it's probably the only thing I can do really.

Foster has been out since March 2015 after damaging cruciate knee ligaments against Stoke.

Although the Baggies ended the season on a nine-match winless streak, Albion’s keeper said the mood in the dressing room was not all doom and gloom.

Your hypocrisy runs your honour a close second and your loyalty a close third. As Rocket says, you mention me by name and then complain when I respond. What a rich mix of the lowest qualities you are.

Despite Birmingham's City League Cup Final win, they were relegated to The Championship on the final day of the 2010–11 Premier League Season.

But Foster – who played under Hodgson at Albion – has been in regular contact with his former boss.

Personally I don't care what you say although I'm sure Sam Alladyce will be concerned. It was WONOH that you gave your word that you would stay off here but I don't think he had you down as a man of honour so I wouldn't worry about it.

“Normally on a week to week working basis I won’t be training until Wednesday or Thursday to let the knee settle down,” he said. “I have to keep on top of it. I have to keep doing all my strengthening work and biking as much as I can.

Pulis, though, says the former Manchester United player should focus on his club before contemplating more England caps.

"I will speak with the medical staff but I would like to think he might be involved in Saturday's FA Cup game."

“It’s not essential for me to get back into the England team, it’s just keeping that knee good as gold. This is probably the best I’ve been in a while since I got back to full fitness last season.

Such would suggest Foster, who actually played in England's last finals match (the 0-0 draw with Costa Rica at the 2014 World Cup), is now fifth in line for the number one jersey.

Foster retired from international football between May 2011 and February 2013 to spend more time with his young family.

“I think we were genuinely quite unlucky in a few of the games. We could have got a lot more than we did get.

Foster spent the first half of last season laid off with a knee injury, and he still has to take it easy in training. But he’s happy with his progress so far this season.

"I'm in the situation where I'm not really training fully, and having to rest it up early doors," he added.

West Brom had hoped he would return by December, but he suffered a minor setback in October which delayed his recovery.

“We could have got a little bit more as well.”
