West Ham boss Grant hoping Green not suffering World Cup hangover

West Ham United boss Avram Grant is confident Robert Green will survive his latest goalkeeping blunder.

A costly fumble against Chelsea on Saturday, in a game West Ham lost 3-1, triggered flashbacks to that awful error on World Cup duty in Rustenburg, three months ago. Next time the ball went near his goal, Green gathered it easily to ironic cheers - from his own supporters.

"Rob is a tough guy," said Grant. "He is a good goalkeeper and he needs to react like a man, which he is doing. We will see him in the next games.

"I don't know if it's still on his mind, you'd need to ask him.

"What happened in the World Cup - even if he'd been the best player, the most important thing is to react."
