Ahead of this summer’s European Championships, the competition to be Roy Hodgson’s first choice shot-stopper has been ramped up with Fraser Forster, Jack Butland and Ben Foster all performing well for their clubs.
75-cap man Seaman was England’s number one for two European competitions and two World Cups and he believes Hart, 28, remains the best option.
Speaking of the competition, the ex-Arsenal ‘keeper told Drive: “Even if you are Joe Hart, I am sure he is happy with what is happening with Fraser Forster and Jack Butland’s been brilliant [too].
“But Joe is still a long, long way above everybody because he is playing in big games all the time – Champions League games, every Man City [fixture] – they are normally near the top and he is still doing his stuff for England.
“He is getting along with it quietly, but still producing quality.”
