25 March 2009 02:53
Ben Foster is determined to become the first-choice keeper for both club and country next season.[LNB] The 25-year-old has been included in Fabio Capello's latest England squad and will be hoping to add to the one cap he already has to his name.[LNB]He admits to being surprised at having received a call after enduring another frustrating year at Manchester United.[LNB]He has once again been forced to fill back-up duties at Old Trafford this term, with Sir Alex Ferguson continuing to favour veteran shot-stopper Edwin van der Sar.[LNB]Ousting the Dutchman remains a short-term target for Foster, while he is also hoping that a regular run in the United side will help to improve his chances of boarding a plane to South Africa for the 2010 World Cup.[LNB]"The biggest club in the world against the biggest competition in the world, that is the dilemma," he said.[LNB]Ambition"Playing for England is a hugely important thing but I am also at the biggest club in the world. I will only get one chance at that and I don't want to give it up.[LNB]"I have to come back next season and get into the manager's face as much as I can. I want to be playing and I want to get into the World Cup squad next season."[LNB]With the England goalkeeper's jersey very much up for grabs at the moment, Foster knows he will never get a better opportunity to stake a claim.[LNB]He admits being at Manchester United should help his cause, but does not believe he will automatically be given the role just because he plays for a successful side.[LNB]"Playing for United does not guarantee you anything but it would certainly make it easier," he said.[LNB]"I am up for the job but it is proving tough enough to get into the United squad at the moment."[LNB]
