World Cup 2010: Manchester United's Ben Foster seems unlikely to travel to South Africa

England's goalkeeping options has been a topic of debate all season, but with just over two months to go before Capello names his final squad for the World Cup 2010, it seems the Italian has decided who will be on the plane to South Africa. Asked how he felt about the options available to him, Capello told Gol Television: "I'm fairly happy. We've got [Robert] Green, [David] James who is older and experienced and [Joe] Hart who is young.  Related Articles'Milner will go to World Cup'Fabio Capello wary of confident SpainTriesman: Premier League don't call the shotsScudamore: FA must shape up after Watmore resignationBulgaria up first for England in Euro 2012Bobby Zamora strengthens World Cup case"So I don't think we have a problem when it comes to goalkeepers." The news will no doubt come as a blow to Ben Foster who, having impressed so much with United last season, has slipped down the pecking order at Old Trafford and is now Sir Alex Ferguson's third choice. Also set to miss out is West Brom goalkeeper Scott Carson who by his own admission has given up hope of an England call up until he is playing in the Premier League again. Depsite his good form in the Championship this season, the 24-year-old said: "I don't think there's any chance of going to the World Cup. Obviously I would like to. I am just putting my head down and trying to improve. "Then next time we are in the Premiership, touch wood, then hopefully I can have a good season and I can think about it. But England is at the back of my mind at the minute. I am trying to concentrate on playing consistently well. "I would settle for a place in the squad, but promotion is more important to me. I am only 24, so hopefully I have got another 10 or 15 years and some more World Cups."
