Hodgson: Joe Hart is Still England's No. 1

MOST COMMENTED

England coach Roy Hodgson confirmed that Joe Hart is still his No. 1 goalkeeper despite Manchester City’s decision to bench him following a number of high profile errors. Hart on Thursday was named in Hodgson’s 28-man squad alongside Celtic keeper Fraser Foster and Norwich’s John Ruddy.

Hodgson confirmed that Hart would start one of England upcoming friendlies against Chile and Germany in the international break. "He will start one of two games, yes," he said. "But I don't think he'll start both. It's important for me to look at one of the other goalkeepers, possibly both. But I can say Joe will definitely start one of the games as he's our No1 goalkeeper."

Asked whether Manchester City coach Manuel Pellegrini had made the right decision in dropping him in favor of Romanian Costel Pantilimon, Hodson said: "Every manager must manage his club in the way he thinks is the best way to manage the club and make the decision regarding players that he must make … Manuel Pellegrini at Man City is totally entitled to do the job he wants to do with the club."
