Norwich City goalkeeper Robert Green has been named in Sven Goran Eriksson's provisional England squad for this summer's World Cup.

The 26-year-old was named, along with Paul Robinson and David James, as one of three goalkeepers travelling to the finals in Germany.

Green, who missed the final four games of this season after injuring his ankle, won his first cap for his country last summer in a friendly against Colombia.

The Canaries' number one was picked as third-choice goalkeeper for the friendly against Uruguay in March and looks set to keep that role.
