Forster named in England squad

Published Add your comment

Roy Hodgson has named Ryan Shawcross, Kieran Gibbs and Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster in his England squad for the forthcoming World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Poland.

With John Terry now retired from international football, there had been plenty of speculation about who the fourth central defender would be.

Tottenham's Steven Caulker seemed like the obvious choice but he was named in Stuart Pearce's Under-21 squad on Wednesday, so Stoke's Shawcross has been picked for only the second time, having failed to win a cap when he was chosen for the friendly against Egypt by Fabio Capello in March 2010.
