Its a funny game soccer
Soemtimes you win, sometimes you lose, and sometimes you get plain lucky like the yanks did against England. I guess the Poms have nobody to blame but Green on that one.
Hopefully we get lucky against Germany in about 2 hours time!! We sure need it

The Uruguayan keeper has scored more international goals than England front man Emile Heskey.
Robert green conceeded the most goals in last seasons Premiership. Now Im no expert in football, but surely these 2 players dont really deserve a place in the national team. last nights performance pretty much confirms it for me.

If it wasn't Green then it would have been someone else on the English side that would have made the mistake.
That's because England always chokes and this time it was no exception. They're terrible.
And those Brits have the gall to criticize Canada for the Olympics when they are the poster boys for futility in the sport they invented. Pathetic.
He was immortalized for his mistake during a match against Sogndal I.L. in 1988, which was shown (unfortunately for Flem) on live television. As Flem was about to throw the ball to a defender on his own team, he threw the ball into his own goal instead. While he was swinging his arm to throw the ball, he changed his mind when he figured out that his teammate was man-marked, resulting in that he let the ball go when he was aiming towards his own goal. The incident made the front pages of national newspapers the next day, and was shown on television in countries across the globe. In Norway, the name Bjarte Flem has become eponymous for a goalkeeper making a huge mistake.
