I felt for Green – Howard

2010-06-12 21:10

US goalkeeper Tim Howard has sympathised with his England

counterpart Robert Green following the latter’s howler that resulted in the

game ending in a draw in the two countries’ opening Group C match.

Howard, who is the teammate of Bafana Bafana’s Steven Pienaar at

Everton, was voted man of the match.

“I felt for him (Green) but it could have happened to any

goalkeeper,” said Howard.

England scored first in tonight’s match through captain Steven

Gerrard in the 4th minute while Green’s butter fingers gifted Clint Dempsey an

equaliser five minutes before halftime.

Algeria faces Slovenia in another Group C match at Peter Mokaba

Stadium in Polokwane tomorrow.
