Chelsea ace Lampard: England will rally round Green

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard insists there was no finger-pointing at Robert Green after last night's draw between England and the USA.

Green allowed a 25-yard shot from USA midfielder Clint Dempsey to slip from his grasp and over the line for the equaliser in a 1-1 draw.

Green's error cancelled out the opening goal from England skipper Steve Gerrard and leaves the group in the balance for Fabio Capello's side.

Lampard said: "We are all behind Robert, he is a fantastic keeper. Everyone makes mistakes and we are together as a team.

"It wasn't the worst performance in the world but there is always room for improvement."
