Ben Foster is an England international goalkeeper how plays for Watford Born on 3rd April 1983, Foster began his career with Non-league side RC Warwick before signing on as a trainee at Stoke City. He soon developed a reputation as an athletic shot stopper during four years in The Potteries – which included time on loan at Bristol City, Kidderminster Harriers and Wrexham. He was signed by Manchester United in July 2005 but spent the next two years with Watford, including playing in the Hornets’ 2005/6 Championship play-off final victory. From 2009 to 2011 he would play in three League Cup finals in a row: with United, Foster was named man of the match in the 2009 League Cup final – where he saved a penalty in the shoot-out – and was an unused substitute in the final a year later. Having signed for Birmingham City in the summer 2010, he was named man of the match, again, as the Blues lifted the 2011 League Cup. Having initially signed on loan, West Bromwich Albion paid £4m for the player in June 2012. Forster made his international debut in February 2007 and represented England at the FIFA 2014 World Cup.
