West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster admits it is an honour to be called up to the England squad for the World Cup this summer.

Foster learned the news of his inclusion in Roy Hodgson's 23-man squad on Monday, following the climax of a tough Premier League season for the Baggies.

The 31-year-old is expected to be second choice behind Manchester City stopper Joe Hart and he insists he is more than happy to be called in as back-up.

The Birmingham City and Manchester United man retired from international football during the Fabio Capello era but announced that he had changed his mind a year ago when he was welcomed back by Hodgson.

Foster said: "I think Joe Hart should be No 1.

"He is a fantastic goalkeeper and we are lucky to have someone like him.

"For me it is going to be a real honour to be involved in a World Cup squad. I have never been involved in a major tournament. If I get the call I am really going to be looking forward to it."
