Forster Targets France

Forster Targets France

Fraser Forster is vocal again on the England issue, setting his sights firmly on retaining his place in the squad with Euro 2016 already on his mind...

The Celtic man recently spoke about the experience that he enjoyed from the world cup, despite our early exit of course, and how he felt this would benefit him going forward and now he is looking to this coming season and the main thing that he feels can keep him very much in the limelight.

Displays at club level for Celtic, and at the highest level in the champions league, in recent years have really impressed with him playing well against some of Europe's finest, most notably Barcelona a couple of years back.

Celtic need to come through qualifying to make it into the tournament proper this season and he has spoken about this is the Sunday Post. This 2nd round 1st leg tie against KR Reykjavik takes place in Iceland on Tuesday and he knows this starts the road to the tournament proper if the Scottish champions can progress.

He also knows how good, 'exposure wise', it is for him is qualification is secured: 'playing in the Champions League has definitely been good for me in terms of exposure. But it's been good for all of us and for the club too.

'We've all seen how big the Champions League nights are and it would be nice to get back in the group stages, but Reykjavik will be a tough away game and we need to play as well as we know we can.

'The Euros are now only a couple of years away so I'm already setting my sights on that.'

Forster will also have arguably more competition at club level this season, under a new manager as well, so all being well this can spur him onto even better things this season as I am sure that if he continues to perform he will retain his place in the squad in the coming years.

Can he move up from 3rd choice to no.2, or even no.1?

Well only time will tell on this one but it does seem as though, for the time being at least, that Joe Hart is still very much Roy Hodgson's first choice with Ben Foster his no.2 seen as he was the one given a start in the 'dead rubber' against Cost Rica in Brazil this summer...
