Steve McClaren has underlined the importance of competition for places between his England goalkeepers.
The England manager is pleased to see his No.1 goalkeeper, Paul Robinson, being challenged by David James and Scott Carson who are also in the squad to face Germany on Wednesday night.
Robinson is expected to start the match at Wembley, but James is likely to replace the Tottenham shot-stopper at half-time.
James, 37, has earned a recall to the England setup after a two-year absence and he is considered a serious rival to Robinson after a number of impressive performances for Portsmouth.
"The goalkeepers I have in the squad are the best three I can pick," McClaren told The Sun.
"David is one of them. He's been his usual bubbly self, very good in training.
"Everybody needs competition in the goalkeeping area and Scott Carson also comes into it.
"He put in some great performances with the Under 21s and Paul knows although he's No.1 he's got competition."
