England manager Roy Hodgson has "every faith" in goalkeeper Joe Hart

Roy Hodgson says that he has "every faith" in out-of-form Joe Hart to reclaim his best form for both club and country.

England manager Roy Hodgson has said that he has "every faith" in goalkeeper Joe Hart to return to his best form.

The Manchester City number one's performances have arguably dipped of late for both club and country but Hodgson isn't considering changing his first-choice stopper.

"As far as I'm concerned, I have every faith in Joe. I still think I have a top-class goalkeeper," he told reporters at a press conference following the announcement of his squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine.

Hodgson also expressed his disappointment at the absence of Ben Foster, who was ruled out for up to 12 weeks earlier today because of a stress fracture in his right foot.

"It's a great pity," Hodgson added. "He's been in exceedingly good form."

England welcome Moldova to Wembley on September 6 before travelling to Kiev to face Ukraine four days later.
