Kean backs Robinson for England

Next Story

Blackburn boss Steve Kean believes Paul Robinson deserves to be back in the England reckoning after he saved his side a point in the 1-1 draw against Aston Villa.

Robinson denied Charles N'Zogbia, Gabriel Agbonlahor and Barry Bannan with superb stops before David Dunn's late header cancelled out N'Zogbia's early opener. Robinson has not played for England since pulling out of the squad for a friendly against Hungary in 2010 and announcing his retirement from the squad.

But he has intimated recently he may reconsider, and Kean said: "I certainly think he is good enough to get back in there and with the change at the top who's to say he can't do it? If it wasn't for his performance in the first half today the game could have been beyond us."
