Geordie Keeper Catching The Eye

9 years ago

Having left Newcastle United for a pittance in the summer, Fraser Forster’s star continues to rise.

Having made the last England squad, Forster then chose the Nou Camp on Tuesday night to produce an inspired performance.

Facing the might Of Barcelona, Forster’s Celtic only had 28% of the possession but only lost in the final seconds to a Jordi Alba goal.

Samaras scored the opener before Iniesta equalised on the stroke of half-time.

The story though was all about an outstanding Fraser Forster performance as he faced 26 shots including 16 on target.

It is performances like this, on such a big stage, that catch managers’ eyes and if Forster keeps it up then by the end of next season at the latest I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Geordie keeper at a high profile Premier League club.
