Fraser Forster has kept 18 clean sheets in 35 games for Norwich City this season, and has been a key figure in getting the East Anglia club promoted back to the Championship.
Fraser Forster – call-up for England U-21 side?
Fraser has played lots of games this season at Norwich and he believes he has improved a lot during his time on loan this season.
“I have loved my time at Norwich and I couldn’t really have asked for a better season for myself,”
“It has been fantastic to get the opportunity to be playing week in, week out at such a big club in front of so many fans.”
“I think I have massively improved. I think it has been great for me playing 35, 40 games this season.”
“It has been a fantastic experience for me playing in front of 25,000 fans every home game.” “It has been great so I couldn’t have hoped for anymore.”
The giant 6’6″ goalkeeper has recently been mentioned as a possibility (probability?) to get a call-up to the England Under 21 side, from England manager and former Newcastle full-back Stuart Pearce, and Forster admits it is one of his ambitions to play for the England U21 side:
“It has been one of my ambitions to play for the Under 21s,” “If it happens it happens, but if not it is not a major worry.”
“I just want focus on playing well for Norwich for the remainder of this season and then just work as hard as I can in pre-season and see what happens.”
It could be really fitting for Fraser to get the England call-up, because we’ve heard nothing but great things about our goalkeeper, from the loyal Norwich City fans – who have been getting 25,000 home fans in England’s 3rd division, which is fantastic – with the emphasis on fan. 😀
There could well be some competition for Fraser next season however, as we understand Glasgow Rangers, who were after him a few years back, before he signed for Newcastle – want him on loan in Glasgow next season.
If Rangers do come in it would be hard for Chris Hughton to deny Fraser that chance, because of course Rangers are in the European Champions League next season.
The future of Fraser Forster is looking very bright right now.
