FOSTER PRAISE FOR HODGSON
West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster believes Roy Hodgson's way of working will be of great benefit to England as they step up their preparations for Euro 2012.
Foster hailed his former boss' man-management skills - something which has been seen as a potential weakness for Hodgson in his new role as England manager - ahead of Wednesday's squad announcement for the European Championships.
But Foster, who has spent the past season playing under the veteran coach, believes Hodgson has the ability to transform the national side following his successful overhaul of West Brom's defence last season.
Hodgson brought in defenders Gareth McAuley and Billy Jones on free transfers last summer, with Liam Ridgewell joining the club in January.
The trio formed part of a revamped West Brom defence, with Jonas Olsson the only surviving member of the side's backline, after Steven Reid's season was cut short by injury in March.
"You can only make wholesale changes if you are organised and Roy is always organised," Foster told the club's official website, www.wba.co.uk.
"England will benefit from that greatly, as everybody in the team knows their job.
"Your role is black and white and you know exactly what you need to do.
"At every moment in every game, every player knows what they should or should not be doing depending on what has happened somewhere else on the pitch."
