Green to mull over Norwich future
Norwich keeper Robert Green in action for England on Tuesday
If you have England aspirations you have to prove yourself at the top level
Norwich keeper Robert Green
Norwich goalkeeper Robert Green says he will have talks with the club over his future when he returns from holiday.

Green, 25, made his England debut in Tuesday's 3-2 win over Colombia and he is keen the Canaries' relegation does not harm his international ambitions.

"My future is something to think about when I get back from holiday," he said.

"It's not ideal, the Premiership is the place to play. In the England squad, there aren't many outside the Champions League let alone the Premiership."

He added: "I was picked for one friendly international when I was in the Championship. David James was picked in the same way when at West Ham.

"If you have England aspirations you have to prove yourself at the top level."

Green was reasonably happy with his debut despite conceding a goal after coming on for James at half-time.

"I knew when the team was announced that I'd be coming on at half-time. I'd have liked to have played the full game but it wasn't to be," said Green.

"Was I nervous? Yes, it is probably worse when you are watching the first half and you know you are going on and the tension builds up.

"It was a barrage at times with the way they were attacking. But it was great to be involved. You want to make saves and thankfully I did."
