Ben Foster speaks about his decision to make himself available for England again
says that family reasons and the appointment of Roy Hodgson
are behind his decision to come out of international retirement.
The WBA goalkeeper announced last week that he would be available for England selection again
, after previously standing down from international reckoning in 2011.
And the 29-year-old explained that there were two main reasons behind his decision, with Hodgson's appointment as England manager being one of them having already worked under him at the Hawthorns.
He said: "With Roy in charge, that's a big draw for me.
"I know what Roy is about and just from talking to a few of the lads since he took over, he's so much more relaxed round the England set up.
"Roy has brought that factor of wanting to be there. Roy has brought a lot more optimism and the lads seem really happy to be called-up and be involved now."
Foster has been one of the Premier League's top performers this season as West Brom have impressed under Hodgson's replacement, Steve Clarke.
And it's being back to full fitness and settled off the pitch which have also played a part in Foster's decision to make himself available again.
He added: "I was playing with a lot of niggles and my kids were born around that time as well.
"They were about one and two, so it was hard for me to go away for a week or ten days and not see my kids or family.
"It was too much of a big miss."
Hodgson will name his next squad for the World Cup qualifiers in San Marino and Montenegro next week.
