Blackburn boss Allardyce: Robinson deserves England return

Blackburn Rovers boss Sam Allardyce says goalkeeper Paul Robinson deserves an England recall.

Allardyce said: "Fabio Capello should have had someone watching Blackburn v Portsmouth. If he hasn't then he hasn't done his job right.

"Anyone watching that game would have seen a better performance from Paul Robinson than he did from David James.

"The lad is on the top of his game and is back to his top end performances that we knew he could do before. He has done it consistently now over last eight or nine games and the games we have lost heavily he stopped us losing even greater with his performances."
