West Ham boss hails keeper Green as 'something special'

Gianfranco Zola is hoping Robert Green will once again demonstrate why he is England's first-choice goalkeeper when West Ham meet Everton on Sunday at Upton Park. Green will make his 100th successive start for the Hammers against Everton and Zola believes the England goalkeeper is "something special".

"Robert Green gave a really good display against Villa and made one of those saves that will probably be the save of the season," said Zola.

"I was particularly pleased for him and he is such an important player for us. To see him in such form is good for everybody.

"He showed again why he is the number one for England with some miracle saves and it says everything about him that he has played 99 games in a row for this club. He is something special."
