Fraser Forster named in Hodgson's squad against Denmark

Celtic's record-breaking goalkeeper Fraser Forster has been named in Roy Hodgson's latest England squad to face Denmark next week.

The Hoops No.1 has been in fine form for the Glasgow club this season, with him claiming the Scottish league shut-out record following 13 consecutive clean sheets and 1,256 minutes without conceding.

The former Norwich shot stopper has previously been capped for the Three Lions when he featured in goal in the 2-0 defeat to Chile at Wembley back in November.

But despite his shut-out run coming to an end in Tuesday's 2-0 loss at Pittodrie for Celtic, Hodgson has called up Forster again as he looks to get to know his best squad ahead of the World Cup in Brazil this summer, with this being England's final fixture before the announcement of a provisional squad for the tournament is made.

Manchester City's Joe Hart, West Brom's Ben Foster and John Ruddy of Norwich will join the 25-year-old for the Wembley friendly on Wednesday.
