Ben Foster: My pre-match playlist

WBA goalkeeper Ben Foster reveals the tunes that get his adrenaline pumping and tears rolling...

My pre-match playlist is...

"Bloc Party’s tunes Helicopter or Banquet are real chest pumpers. I used to listen to them all the time when I was playing at Watford.

I think to listen to either one of these two songs just before I go out – it gives me that extra boost. I also love to listen to the Al Pacino speech from Any Given Sunday.

More after the break

It’s just ridiculous – it gives me goosebumps and almost makes me want to cry. It brings a tear to your eye – it’s a massive speech.

At the end of that you just want to go out there and go crazy."
