Wigan manager believes former England 'keeper deserves recall

Rob Green

Rob Green put in a man of the match performance for QPR last night as they beat Wigan and climbed to third.

Wigan manager Uwe Rosler believes Rob Green's performances this season merit a recall for the national side. Green helped QPR to a victory last night, ending Wigan's ten game unbeaten run. 

"The QPR goalkeeper, for me, was the man of the match. I think maybe Roy Hodgson should have a look at him," said Rosler after the game. 

Green is infamous amongst England fans, for a mistake he made in the 2010 World Cup against the USA.

But the former Norwich and West Ham keeper has firmly put that behind him and gone from strength to strength with QPR this season. Green broke a club record earlier in the season that had stood for 46 years with eight consecutive clean sheets. 

QPR currently have 17 clean sheets and while Brighton have an equal amount, no team has more. 

They could still be on 16 though and be two points worser off, but for Rob Green's last minute save to deny Wigan an equaliser. 

The Hoops' assistant coach Kevin Bond said: "Rob Green had to be at his best and produced a great save right at the end. I thought it was a really good game tonight."

Green will have to continue with the performances he's been putting in all season if he wants to be on the plane to Brazil, but the R's keeper does have more clean sheets than John Ruddy, Ben Foster and Joe Hart.
