WBA boss Steve Clarke reveals goalkeeper will be available for England duty again
has made himself available for England duty again, according to West Bromwich Albion manager Steve Clarke.
The 29-year-old goalkeeper has won five caps for England since debuting against Spain in February 2007, with the last of his appearances coming against France at Wembley in November 2010.
He announced his international retirement in May 2011 and has been in impressive form with the Baggies under Clarke this season.
And speaking ahead of their Premier League trip to Chelsea this weekend, Clarke revealed that Foster has had a change of heart regarding international football.
He said: "I had an informal chat with Ben last week when he said he might make himself available for international selection again, which is good. It's Ben's choice.
"We sat here before and I've said the opposite, that it is great he spends time with his family.
"One of the reasons he told me is that the kids are a little bit older and are at school now, so that side has moved on a bit.
"His injury situation is much better and he has also got a burning ambition to play for his country in a major tournament. The World Cup next year in Brazil is a major tournament.
"He has been in excellent form this season."
