Robert Green's 2010 will undoubtedly be remembered for one moment, when Clint Dempsey equalised for USA in the World Cup opener in Rustenburg, but it had all started so positively with Green lining up from the start against Egypt at Wembley as the man in possession of the number one shirt.
Green had started six consecutive games under Fabio Capello in 2009, and played in the opening two matches of 2010 to indicate that he was the first choice England goalkeeper. So it proved as Green lined up against USA on 12 June, but it would be his last cap of the year.
Green showed great strength of character both on and off the pitch, denying a potential matchwinner from Jozy Altidore in the second half, before fronting up by speaking to every media outlet that who wished to guage his reaction after the game.
Later in the year Green also made a return to the England squad following defiant goalkeeping performances for West Ham, again showing the resilience that exists within the stopper.
