WBA Have Benefitted From Foster's England Decision

WBA Have Benefitted From Foster's England Decision

Paul Scharner has said he believes that Albion have definitely benefitted from Ben Foster's decision to not play for England.

Speaking to the E&S the midfielder hailed the goalkeepers 'perfect' performance against Wigan as proof that the decision to focus on club football was definitely the right decision.

'From my point of view it was a good decision - I think it is very difficult to play for England from what I see. The expectation is very high for England, but Ben has the quality. He is on top of his game, he had a perfect game for us on Saturday. He saved absolutely everything and was a bit unlucky when they scored.'

Foster has certainly been a revelation for us season and all eyes will be on the summer and our chances of keeping him at the club long term.

That issue isn't something that passed Scharner by, as he equally told wba.co.uk.

"Ben is a player of quality that we want to keep but that is a decision for the club, not me."

I don't think anybody would mind if it was your decision Paul!
