Ben Foster targets return

Birmingham City summer recruit Ben Foster is desperate to impress for the Blues and re-ignite his international career with England.

The 27-year-old left Manchester United in search of regular first-team football, having missed out on a place at the World Cup finals due to a lack of opportunities at Old Trafford.

He told the Birmingham Mail: “It was what cost me at the end of the day. I was not on the plane to South Africa and I couldn’t argue with the manager’s decision.

“I’d played one game in seven months before the World Cup. I saw Mr Capello at a few matches with United last season and he asked me what was going on and things like that.

“I think he will be fairly pleased that I will be looking to play some first-team football now.

“He did play me in a few games, so he did see something in me that he quite likes, so with the chance to play first-team football, hopefully I’ll be able to get back in there again.”
