Albion star backed for Euro call-up

Jonny Evans believes there is still a chance West Brom team-mate Ben Foster can force his way into England’s squad for Euro 2016.

The 33-year-old was Albion’s man of the match at the weekend as he secured his team a vital point in the goalless draw with Sunderland, leading to talk about his chances of going to France this summer.

Manchester City stopper Joe Hart and Southampton’s Fraser Forster look set to fill two of the three goalkeeping positions in England’s squad but a season-ending injury to Stoke’s Jack Butland has thrown the third spot wide open.

Burnley No.1 Tom Heaton replaced Butland in Hodgson’s squad for the recent friendly with the Netherlands but Evans says there is no reason why it will not be Foster heading to Euro 2016, instead of Heaton.

Evans, who will be representing Northern Ireland at Euro 2016, told the Express & Star: “I’m sure Ben is looking to be in contention for the Euros.

“His performances since heÂ’s come back in have been outstanding. He’s always had that ability.

“It’s been difficult for him because heÂ’s been out for a while with his knee. Even though he’s been injured for so long he still has that ability to pull of wonder-saves.”
