Green in EURO 2012 squad

West Ham United are happy to confirm that Robert Green has been named in England's 23-man squad for the 2012 UEFA European Championship finals.

The Hammers No1 has been included in Roy Hodgson's selection for the tournament, which begins in Poland and Ukraine on 8 June.

Green, who has eleven senior caps, made his England debut against Colombia in New York on 31 May 2005. The 32-year-old made his most-recent appearance against the United States at the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.

The goalkeeper has been rewarded following a fine season for the Hammers during which he has kept 13 clean sheets and helped the club to reach the npower Championship Play-Off final.

A consistent figure capable of pulling off exceptional saves, Green has made 240 first-team appearances for West Ham since joining the club from Norwich City in August 2006.

After making his England debut in Giants Stadium as a half-time substitute for David James, Green made his first start on his third appearance in a 4-0 FIFA World Cup qualifying win in Kazakhstan on 6 June 2009.

He has totalled nine starts for his country, but became the first England goalkeeper to be sent-off when he was red-carded in a 1-0 FIFA World Cup qualifying defeat in Ukraine in October 2009. Since then, he has made successful appearances against Egypt and Mexico in the build-up to the 2010 FIFA World Cup finals.
