Hugh Wilson takes a look at the goalkeeping situation for England as they approach the World Cup next June, and has a 10/11 tip to shareJoe Hart has been a permanent fixture in the England national team since 2011, making the position his own, with other goalkeepers struggling to put any sort of pressure on him.

The bookmakers still see his position as fairly safe though. The 26-year-old is currently 1/4 (1.25) with BetVictor to start the opening group game for England in the World Cup, although that's a price that seems to offer no value at all when you consider Hart has lost his place in the Manchester City side in recent weeks.
With the market heavily focused on Hart, it's worth looking elsewhere to find a bet that stands out with regards to England's goalkeepers.
BetVictor also have a market for who will be on the plane to Brazil.
They price Celtic's Fraser Forster at 10/11 (1.91), Norwich's John Ruddy at 5/4 (1.25) and West Brom's Ben Foster at 11/10 (2.10).
Of those three goalkeepers, Forster stands out at a great price due to his current form. Despite not yet being capped for England, the Celtic man has been included in the squad a number of times, and is set to make his debut against Chile this week.
Forster comes into this game as the in-form goalkeeper in the squad, having impressed in the Scottish Premiership for Celtic. More importantly, he's also stood out in the Champions League, with the 25-year-old putting in some heroic performances against Ajax and Barcelona recently, proving he can cut it on the big stage.
With John Ruddy currently unable to find consistent form and Ben Foster on the sidelines injured, the price of 10/11 (1.91) for Forster to make the squad seems too good to miss.
