News: England keeper Fraser Forster replaced by Southampton team-mate Alex McCarthy

Injured Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster has been replaced by club-mate Alex McCarthy for England’s World Cup qualifier in Slovakia on Sunday.

Uncapped McCarthy, 26, was called up after Forster, 28, returned to his club for treatment on an arm injury.

The ex-Crystal Palace keeper has played three times for England’s Under 21s.

Joe Hart, on loan at Torino from Manchester City, and Burnley’s Tom Heaton are the other goalkeepers named in Sam Allardyce’s first England squad.

McCarthy joined Saints in the summer as deputy to Forster but has yet to feature in a game.
