Pun­ters are giv­ing their back­ing to the Green keeper

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - World Cup -

RoB Green has re­ceived back­ing from pun­ters who have made him the favourite to be Eng­land’s start­ing keeper against Al­ge­ria on Fri­day.

Fol­low­ing Green’s howler against the USA on Satur­day, Paddy Power were of­fer­ing 11/4 the West Ham stop­per would be re­tained in Eng­land’s goal but that has been backed in to 4/5 favourite. David James, who Paddy Power had ex­pected to be re­called, has drifted from 4/7 to 11/8 with Joe Hart the 11/2 out­sider.

Dar­ren Haines, spokesman for Paddy Power, said: “Pun­ters seem to ac­cept these things can hap­pen and no real dam­age was done to Eng­land’s long-term chances so are ex­pect­ing Fabio to keep the faith with Green.”
