West Ham chief Gold: Green deserves England recall

West Ham United co-owner David Gold says Robert Green deserves an England recall.

Green has failed to add to his 11 England caps since his error in South Africa, but Gold thinks his performance at Upton Park will put the stopper back in Fabio Capello's thoughts for next month's Euro 2012 qualifier against Montenegro.

"When that game (against Tottenham) was over I thought, wow, what a performance," Gold said.

"He made some world class saves.

"In my mind, he is the England goalkeeper. He will have a bad day from time to time, goalkeepers do.

"Robert Green is an international goalkeeper, full stop. I would like to think he'd be back in contention for a place in the squad for the next England match.

"If I was the manager, I would pick him. He is a class act and he has a great character and a strong fibre within him. He's a great professional and I'd like to see him back in the England side on a regular basis."
