Hart enjoys pressure of expectation

Published Add your comment

England keeper Joe Hart admits he will thrive on the greater expectations now on his shoulders as he prepares for his first taste of senior tournament football at Euro 2012.

Hart went to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa but played no part with Robert Green replaced by David James after his nightmare blunder against the United States in the opening game. But now the Manchester City player is the established number one and is relishing the challenges that will lie ahead in Poland and Ukraine this summer.

Hart, who played in two Euro finals with England Under-21s, said: "I must have improved in that time (since the World Cup). I seem to be getting better. Whether that comes from playing regularly....but I've always felt like I'm improving although I feel like I've got loads more to do."
