Green Off

Last updated : 15 October 2009 By Plymouth_hammer

Green was left exposed after a lapse in concentration by former Hammer Rio Ferdinand.  He brought down Artem Milevskiy and the referee awarded a penalty and sent the unfortunate Green for an early bath.

Green was replaced in goal by 39-year-old David James who, despite conceding the only goal of the game, is seen as Capello’s first choice for South Africa.  Green’s other rival for the spot is Manchester United’s Ben Foster who looks set to play in the game against Belarus on Wednesday.
