Former Owls' loanee 'keeper Scott Carson has been selected as stand-by keeper for the World Cup this summer by England boss Sven-Goran Eriksson.
Liverpool stopper Carson will be ready and raring for a place in the squad that will travel to Germany this July should one of the three squad 'keepers selected by Eriksson pick up an injury.
Current England number one Paul Robinson of Tottenham Hotspur will put the misery of being pipped to 4th spot by Arsenal behind him, while Manchester City stopped David James and Norwich City keeper Robert Green provide back up.
The former Leeds United stopper moved to Hillsborough from Liverpool in March and helped the Owls avoid relegation to League One. His fine form meant Carson picked up a number of man of the match appearances while leading the Owls to just one defeat in their final nine matches.
Owls boss Paul Sturrock has labelled Carson as his number one target this summer. But Championship rivals Cardiff City are also said to be in the running to offer him a season-long loan spell.
Carson is currently third choice goalkeeper at Anfield with Jose Reina as number one and Jerzy Dudek as back-up. Reds boss Rafa Benitez has expressed his desire to see Carson playing on a regular basis, and the stopper is said to have thoroughly enjoyed his time at Hillsborough.
