Green: my England hope

After Fabio Capello overlooked him, West Ham goalkeeper Robert Green admitted he still hoped to be called up for Capello's England squad's in the future. David James, Scott Carson and Chris Kirkland made the squad.

"You can let it get you down if you want to, but I know I can't do anything about it, so I just try to play the best I can every week," said Green in The People.

"If that's not enough then so be it. There are plenty of people who think they should be in the side and aren't.

"I believe that I'm good enough to play for England. The situation is, though, that I have never played a game in the Champions League or in the Uefa Cup.

"If I could say I'd played 50 Champions League games then maybe the situation would be different. But that doesn't mean I don't have the belief that I can do well for England."
