Hodgson maintains faith in England goalkeeper Hart

England manager Roy Hodgson is confident Joe Hart will regain his best form, ESPN has reported, as he prepares to pick the Manchester City goalkeeper to play Germany at Wembley on Tuesday.

Hart was dropped by club boss Manuel Pellegrini after a costly error against Chelsea and sat out England’s 2-0 defeat to Chile on Friday, with Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster getting a debut cap as Hodgson examined his options in the position. Hart will return to the starting XI against Germany, however, and Hodgson is sure Hart is up to the challenge.


When you put that England shirt on, whether it be a white shirt or a goalkeeper's jersey, it will be a tough mental test and a tough test of attitude,” Hodgson said. “But I fully believe that Joe understands that and is ready for that. All I can do is give him the shirt and the chance to go out and play and afterwards, he's going to have to face whatever he faces.


Whether he plays well and keeps a clean sheet to help us to win the game - I'm sure people are going to be saying some very good things about him - but if he doesn't and lets a couple of easy goals in, he's going to have to accept that there'll be criticism because that's the way of the world we live in,” Hodgson added.


Forster and Norwich City’s John Ruddy have been Hart’s back-up and challengers for a place in the England team of late, with West Bromwich Albion’s Ben Foster also a contender before suffering a long-term injury.
