  • Personally I think I would have played Joe Hart, since although he is young every player has to start somewhere and there have been young players in the past (Michael Owen being an obvious example) who have done very well at their first World Cup

      As I write this review, the name of Robert Green is on everyone’s lips at the World Cup, but not for the reasons he would surely have wished them to be. Instead of being able to look back on his competition debut with pride and happiness, Green will surely now be wishing the ground could open up and swallow him, and he must also be wondering whether or not he will keep his place

      • well at their first World Cup. However, I think Green was a perfectly reasonable choice, and I would probably have selected him ahead of the accident prone, though experienced, David James.

        For the Algeria game I think it is a tricky decision as to which keeper to pick. My preference would still be for Hart, since I think that he is the most talented of the three options, and that he is likely to have

        a long England career in front of him. However, this review is about Green, so the question is whether or not he will ever truly recover from his error and return to being an England regular. I suspect that he won’t, because he will now always be wondering just what might have been - and if England are knocked out early, Green may never again be relied on in the way he has been up until now.
