Robinson misses out on World Cup squad

Robinson misses out on World Cup squad

More on this as we get it but Paul Robinson has missed out on one of the three goalkeeping berths in the England World Cup provisional 30 man squad.

As expected, Fabio Capello has to opted to select Robert Green, David James and Joe Hart as his three goalkeepers for the tournament.

But Fabio has left Robbo at home and decided to take at least two inferior goalkeepers to Blackburn's No.1

No surprises here for me. He was never going to get called up, Capello has made this clear from the start by not giving him a chance. As riisenholt says he can go with the family and have a nice relaxing holiday and come back fresh for next year and have another exceptional season.

I was hoping for Robinson to make the squad. He's looked back to his best this season. I'd rather we took him than James or Green.

one of the many reasons why England won't get past the round of 16

Shocking decison to be honest....doesnt fill me with any optimism that the goal will be filled by one of the nominated keepers!!!

Personally I'm not surprised that Robbo has missed out, it doesn't mean I'm not disappointed though!!
