'Anxious' Hart In Right Frame Of Mind
Roy Hodgson believes Joe Hart will be desperate to prove his doubters wrong when he lines up in goal against Germany on Tuesday.
Roy Hodgson: "He will be anxious to seize his chance and anxious to show everyone that he is still a very good goalkeeper.
"Joe is in the right frame of mind to play.
"He has been fine in training and I know (goalkeeping coach) Dave Watson has been happy with him so I could only answer in the affirmative that he is fine.
"He is ready. The Chile game was Fraser Forster's chance to show what he can do but (Hart) knows it's his chance on Tuesday night.
"This is what England manager has been like for me - selecting players who haven't played for a couple of weeks.
"Jermain Defoe played against Chile and he hasn't played for hardly any part of the season.
"I am pretty sure that all of the XI who go out on Tuesday night will be anxious that they put any comparisons (with Germany) to bed and that they will show they are every bit as good and that is what I believe they will be."
