Albion goalkeeper cuts short Three Lions duty
BEN Foster has returned from England training due to a hand injury which Albion’s medical team will assess over the next few days.
The 31-year-old World Cup representative was due to be involved in tonight’s Wembley friendly against Norway.
But he suffered a thumb injury during training yesterday and was allowed to return to his club in a precautionary move.
Albion’s Director of Football Administration Richard Garlick said: “We will spend the next few days letting it settle down and then assess it again – but at this stage we are optimistic it is not a serious problem.
“It made sense for Ben to take no chances.”
