Former West Ham United and Leeds goalkeeper Mervyn Day says Robert Green deserves to be England's No1.

Day told the Daily Mail: "All this carping about what we're going to do about the goalkeeping slot and the concern over David James' age and that there's no successor I think is complete nonsense.

"For the last couple of years Greeny has been the most consistent English goalkeeper in the Premier League. His reactions are excellent.

"I'll nail my comments to the cross now and say I think he is the best English goalkeeper in the League."
