Former England goalkeeping coach Ray Clemence has highlighted the progress of Manchester City's Joe Hart this season.

He said: "The England goalkeeping situation is a lot better than it was four or five years ago.

"We have got a lot of young keepers who have got into their first teams, are improving and their dedication to the job is superb.

"There is Joe Hart at Manchester City and I have to congratulate Sven-Goran Eriksson on his bravery in putting him in at 20 and telling him he is in basically for the season.

"It has taken enormous pressure off him and Joe knows if he does make a mistake, he will still be in the side the following game and that has shown in his performances."
