West Ham keeper Green can't believe England snub

West Ham goalkeeper Robert Green has no idea why he was again overlooked by England manager Steve McClaren.

Green said: "In the summer I was in the England squad and got told my position was there to lose - and I lost it through not playing a game.

"That's something, if people want to find out about things like that, then it needs to be brought up with England. From my point of view, I am playing as well as I have done in my career.

"When I was at Norwich in the Championship I got told I was good enough to be in the squad. Now I am playing with West Ham in the Premiership and playing well, it seems I'm not good enough.

"Players have come in and David James got picked on good form but I have lost my place when in good form. I'm obviously in terms of choice quite low down the pecking order.

"You try to work logic and sense into these things and the only thing you can say is they don't regard me as good enough.

"I've had no explanation from England. I found out I was not in the squad when it came up on Teletext. No-one has contacted me."
