Stockdale for England

Sunday 7th August 2011
Fulham goalkeeper, David Stockdale has been called up to England's 25 man squad to face Holland. Stockdale, who is on loan at Ipswich, is considered to be one of the country's finest young goalkeeper's and this call up further cements that view.

Being around quality goalkeepers such as Joe Hart will only increase the quality which Stockdale already possess. Although he is likely to be behind both Hart and Green in the pecking order he will gain experience from these two keepers'. Being behind them in the queue will serve only to motivate him and make him strive to become the England number 1.

This is great news for both Ipswich and Fulham, and England too. It's not often England managers are blessed with more than one good goalkeeper. Lets hope that those errors which have blighted Carson, James and Green in the past do not surface again.
