I think it would be foolish for anyone to blame Robert Green for the major mistake he made for England vs USA in yesterdays World Cup group stage game, after Clint Dempsey’s shot. It’s easier for people like Heskey or Rooney to get away with mistakes, which indeed they did. Though because Green is the last line of defense his errors are made more visible.
Instead of blaming Green perhaps ask the question, why didn’t England score more goals? The answer in my opinion is that England are a totally overated team and USA are probably on par with them. Think about the FIFA rankings, USA are 14th and England are 9th, so not much between them. In addition in 2006 USA were actually ranked 4th in the world.
Whether Green is picked for the next game or not people should getbehind him and get his confidence up, focus on the positive, not the negative.
