West Ham United goalkeeper Robert Green is on his way to the European Championships after being named in Roy Hodgson's 23-man squad.
The 32-year-old Hammer will travel to Eastern Europe next month as one of three shot-stoppers named in the new England manager's first tournament selection.
Out of contract with West Ham at the end of the season, Green has failed to make a start for his country since his appearance against the USA in the 2010 World Cup Finals in South Africa.
He will be very much second choice behind Manchester City's Joe Hart - but almost certainly ahead of Norwich City's John Ruddy in the pecking order.
