West Ham United goalkeeper Robert Green is pleased with his England call-up.

He told whufc.com: "It's good to go. I'll go there, train hard and see what happens with the game on Wednesday. My name is first on the squad list but I think that's an alphabetical thing! Seriously, though, I wouldn't go if I didn't see it as an opportunity. It's another chance to show the manager and his staff what I can do and hopefully give myself a chance.

"There are three West Ham United players [Green, Matthew Upson and Carlton Cole] in the squad and two Manchester United players [Rio Ferdinand and Michael Carrick] - both of whom are former West Ham players - and it is recognition of the form that the lads have been in here."
