Fraser Forster handed England call-up

By: Mark Henderson on 04 Oct, 2012 11:00

CELTIC goalkeeper Fraser Forster has been named in the England squad for their World Cup double-header against San Marino and Poland.

The call-up is just reward for the keeper´s outstanding club form over a concerted period in both domestic and European football.

Forster recently passed the 100-appearance milestone for the Hoops and played a pivotal role in Celtic´s championship success last season.

Neil Lennon has been vocal in his calls for the 24-year-old to be recognised by his country, and he now becomes the first Celtic player to be capped by England since Alan Thompson in 2004.

The news rounds off a memorable week for Forster, having been between the sticks during Celtic´s magnificent 3-2 victory over Spartak Moscow in the UEFA Champions League.
 
And the official website will have exclusive reaction from Fraser to the news later today.
