Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster has been named in Sam Allardyce's first England squad.

Goalkeeper Forster is one of Allardyce's three goalkeepers, alongside Manchester City's Joe Hart and Burnley's Tom Heaton.

Saints' stopper has featured in all three Premier League games for the club so far this season, and will hope to be named as number one for his country by new boss Allardyce.

England face Slovakia in their first FIFA 2018 World Cup qualifier on Sunday 4th September, with a kick-off time of 5pm BST.
