Green and Upson play

Robert Green and Matthew Upson both appeared to come through unscathed in a successful friendly 2010 FIFA World Cup warm-up for England on Monday afternoon.

The Three Lions were 3-0 winners against South African club side Platinum Stars with goals from Academy graduates Jermain Defoe and Joe Cole, who was the only player to feature in the whole 90 minutes, before Wayne Rooney rounded out the scoring. Fabio Capello gave few clues over his preferred XI although Ledley King got the nod alongside John Terry.

The West Ham United duo were both sent on at half-time as Capello gave valuable playing time to his squad, bar David James and Gareth Barry. James' absence will fuel Hammers hopes Green will get the nod in goal for on Saturday against the United States - although Joe Hart also did what was asked of him in the first 45 minutes when the hosts also blasted a penalty over.
