Good to see Robert Green keep a clean sheet in the friendly against Norway (presumably John Carew now counts as Norwegian wood?). Apart from one dodgy moment when a corner hit the post, Greeno had a solid game and has finally played for England again and kept a clean sheet after his error against the USA. Capello treated him very unfairly at the time, ignoring the fine save he made later in the game to push the ball against the post. He could easily have played him against Algeria in the next game to boost his confidence, rather than publicly humiliate him. Good management by Roy Hodgson to ease Green back into the international set-up with a low-profile game.
