Spurs No1 Robinson ready to reclaim England place

Tottenham goalkeeper Paul Robinson is ready to reclaim his England place.

Robinson was axed by Steve McClaren for the crunch Euro 2008 qualifier against Croatia after a nightmare year.

But the Spurs No1 is now looking to regain his England place under new boss Fabio Capello.

Robbo said: "I had a dip in confidence.

"Of course it hurt at the time being left out by England but sometimes you look at the game and become a better player when you're not playing.

"When you get criticised, it is not nice but I feel in the last few weeks I've been getting back to my best. I'm feeling confident now.

"With the new England manager everyone starts with a clean slate but there are only a couple of friendly games during the rest of this season so I'm really looking to maintain my form for Tottenham."
