The psychological maiming of Robert Green continues

The BBC reports that England coach Fabio Capello is set to drop the West Ham man from goal for their match against Algeria and put Pompey’s 39 year old keeper David James in the goal for England.

A breathtaking error by Green gave the United s States a 1-1 draw in Saturday’s tournament opener. An unimpressive training ground performance on Thursday night put Green on the outs and convinced Capello to go with James.

Capello confirmed earlier this week that Gareth Barry will start at midfield and that Spurs forward Jermain Defoe might partner with Wayne Rooney in attack in place of Emile Hesky.
