Green in England squad

Thu, 23 Feb 12:02:09 2012

West Ham goalkeeper Robert Green has been named in the England squad for next Wednesday's friendly against Holland at Wembley.

The 32-year-old has not played for England since his mistake against the USA at the World Cup in 2010.

But he has been back to his best form for the Championship leaders this season, despite a red card in Tuesday night's 4-1 win at Blackpool.

England caretaker boss Stuart Pearce said: "His form at West Ham has been outstanding this year, he's certainly worthy of a place in the squad.

"He's playing well in a side that is playing well."

Midfielder Henri Lansbury, who deputised in goal for Green at Bloomfield Road, is in the Under-21 squad for their clash with Belgium.
