Man City keeper Given feels for Green

Manchester City goalkeeper Shay Given has offered his support to England keeper Rob Green following his World Cup howler against USA on Saturday.

The West Ham shot-stopper gifted Clint Dempsey USA's equaliser in their Group C opener, a mistake that cost England two points as they were held 1-1.

Given has backed Green to bounce back from the disappointment as he believes he has proved in recent campaigns that he is a top class keeper.

"He's proved over the last number of seasons how good a keeper he is.

"I wished him well a couple of days ago. I dropped him a txt and stuff.

"I hope he plays to be honest and does really well. It's one of the best football experiences of your life."
