Ben Foster has given his thoughts after United’s 2-0 victory today, as we make it two wins out of two on the pre-season so far.
Foster is hoping he has more to do in the up-and-coming games and also admits he’s already thinking about next summer’s World Cup.
“It was a good performance,” said Foster. “They didn’t really have any chances. We played some good football at times and the lads got a good work out. I thank my lucky stars I’m a goalkeeper sometimes because with the humidity you just do a little jog and can’t get enough oxygen.”
Foster, whose howler was almost costly at the weekend, admits he was pretty bored during today’s match, before making way for Kuszczak at half time.
“I’d like to have a bit more to do,” he added. “The last match was busier than we thought it was going to be. When you go to these places you don’t expect to do a lot.”
With the World Cup approaching, Foster is focussing on getting in to the United team so that he stands a chance of going to South Africa next summer.
“The next twelve months will be big form me,” he continued. “I’ve got to kick on now. The key for me is to stay fit and play in more games than last season. Ideally I want to be in the England squad at the end of the season. You don’t get too many chances to play at World Cups during your career.”
