West Ham United goalkeeper Robert Green has rethought his England ambitions.

An injury to Manchester United's Ben Foster has opened the England door to Green, who said: "There is a spot there now, at least until Ben gets his fitness back, and once you're in possession you are in a strong position. When Ben gets back, he could be playing the best football of his life and still not get back so long as I am also playing well.

"It's unfortunate for him that he has been injured and I feel for him because it happened to me as well, so I know what he feels like.

"I was involved in the squad but obviously had fallen down the pecking order. It's all about possession of the number one jersey; you have to be seen to be doing something wrong to be dropped and it's very difficult to get back in.

"It's all about patience. If I play well for West Ham then hopefully England will take care of itself. International football is not something I will lose sleep over and if I never play for England again then that is fine, although it won't be for the want of trying. I'll live whatever happens."
