According to a report from the Daily Mirror, Fraser Forster will make his England return on Tuesday against two of his teammates in Virgil van Dijk and Jordy Clasie.

Last March, Forster suffered an horrific knee injury that sidelined him for months when he shattered his knee cap and damaged a few ligaments. Some said they were concerned that he'd be able to play again, others just didn't see him returning to his old form.

Fraser came back earlier than expected and set Southampton's clean sheet record in the process. Forster has played a vital role in Southampton's 2016 turnaround including a massive game against Arsenal earlier in the year.

With Joe Hart currently out, this game will be a huge can't-miss opportunity for Fraser to shine and, with help of his league form, possibly grab the starting spot, or at least the #2 role over Jack Butland in the Euros this Summer.
