West Ham United's Robert Green has been called up to the England 'B' squad in place of the injured Ben Foster.

The Manchester United goalkeeper pulled out of the squad today after aggravating an old knee injury; both Rob Green and Liverpool's Scott Carson were drafted in as a result. They join Tottenham's Paul Robinson as the goalkeepers in the 22 man squad.

Green will join up with his England team mates at their Carrington base tomorrow in preparation for the friendly with Albania, which takes place at Burnley's Turf Moor this Friday (25th) evening.

England B Squad

Robert Green (West Ham United), Paul Robinson (Tottenham Hotspur), Scott Carson (Liverpool); Gareth Barry (Aston Villa), Joleon Lescott (Everton), Phil Neville (Everton), Nicholas Shorey (Reading), Phil Jagielka (Sheffield United), Michael Dawson (Tottenham Hotspur), Ledley King (Tottenham Hotspur); Owen Hargreaves (Bayern Munich), David Bentley (Blackburn), Stewart Downing (Middlesbrough), Kieron Dyer (Newcastle United), Scott Parker (Newcastle United), Jermaine Jenas (Tottenham Hotspur), Aaron Lennon (Tottenham Hotspur); Alan Smith (Manchester United), Michael Owen (Newcastle United), David Nugent (Preston North End), Jermain Defoe (Tottenham Hotspur).
