David Seaman backs Joe Hart to start at Euro 2016, explains why

Joe Hart, Fraser Forster and Jack Butland are all fighting to be Roy Hodgson's England number 1 at Euro 2016.

Not since Ray Clemence and Peter Shilton were vying for England's number 1 shirt have the Three Lions had such a goalkeeping conundrum on their hands.

Joe Hart, Fraser Forster and Jack Butland are all competing to be Roy Hodgson's first-choice in France this summer and there are valid arguments for each.

Current incumbent Hart has held onto his shirt since the culmination of the 2010 World Cup so experience is on his side. The Manchester City number 1 has also kept the second most clean sheets of any Premier League goalkeeper this season (11) - one fewer than Arsenal's Petr Cech.

Butland, though, is right behind his international rival with nine for Stoke City, in what has been his breakthrough campaign in the top division.

Despite missing the first five months of the season through injury, Forster is already closing in on the pair with six and is impressively yet to concede a goal since returning to Southampton's starting line up.

But Seaman, who won 75 caps for England, believes there is one thing keeping Hart on top of the pile.

The 52-year-old told Talksport: "Even if you are Joe Hart, I am sure he is happy with what is happening with Fraser Forster and Jack Butland’s been brilliant [too].

"But Joe is still a long, long way above everybody because he is playing in big games all the time – Champions League games, every Man City [fixture] – they are normally near the top and he is still doing his stuff for England.

"He is getting along with it quietly, but still producing quality."
