Robert Green positive over England future

Robert Green is confident that his form for West Ham should be enough to convince Fabio Capello that he is England's best goalkeeper.

The Hammers No1 is expected to start in goal for England when they take on Slovenia on Saturday in what is expected to be a dress rehearsal for their crucial World Cup qualifier against Croatia next Wednesday.

The 29-year-old will vie for a starting spot with Ben Foster and Paul Robinson, but after England's goalkeeping coach Ray Clemence watched him keep a clean sheet against Blackburn last weekend, it seems Green is the man in pole position to start the match.

"It's the same as everyone else who is playing at the moment," said Green.
