McCarthy backed

19 November 2013

Alex's form praised

Alex McCarthy has been backed to continue his excellent form by another England 'keeper.

Rob Green was in the opposition goal in our last game, a 1-1 draw with QPR, and he spoke highly of man of the match McCarthy.

Green told reporters, "He made some great saves and was superb. It was slightly frustrating for us but that is his job and he did it well.

"I know him from playing against him and he has been in the England set-up.

"What he has in his favour is that he is playing games. As long as keeps doing that, learning and improving then he will have a good career.

"In England we have a tendency to big young players up and say he is the next greatest thing. Then all of a sudden he is not.

"But I expect he will keep his feet on the ground and good luck to him, as he is a real prospect."

McCarthy will continue to push his claim for an England spot, although after tonight's game with Germany, England currently only have one more friendly before the World Cup squad is announced, a match at home to Denmark at the beginning of March.
