Ben Foster 'taking a break' from international football games

12th May 2011 - Alma Shera

Birmingham City goalkeeper Ben Foster has decided to take a break from international football to prolong his club career.

The 28-year-old believes that he will benefit from the extra rest that he can have by not joining up with England football manager Fabio Capello's squad.

Foster is considered to be the second-choice goalkeeper for football manager Capello, and would provide Manchester City's Joe Hart with competition for a first team place.

However, Foster has decided that he needs a break from international soccer games.

"I've enjoyed my time with England and am certainly not closing a door on the international side of things forever but this is the right thing for me to do right now in terms of club football," he said.

However, Bristol City goalkeeper David James, 40, still insists he would be happy to pull on an England shirt if he was called upon by football manager Capello.
