Spain captain Iker Casillas is excited by the potential of England and Manchester City No.1 Joe Hart.

The 24-year-old shot-stopper kept his eight clean sheet of the season on Saturday as England triumphed, somewhat unexpectedly, against Spain at Wembley.

A solitary goal from captain Frank Lampard was enough to give Fabio Capello's side victory over the 2010 World Cup winners.

There has, however, been a negative from some members of the Spain squad, who have criticised the defensive tactics employed by the home side.

Casillas, though, was full of praise for the endeavour's for England's goalkeeper.

"It was the first time I have seen him and I was quite impressed," said experienced Real Madrid custodian.

"England have struggled to find the right keeper but he is a serious player.

"It is important for Fabio Capello to have the confidence in the keeper for the whole side.

"Hart has proved himself in the Premier League with Manchester City. He is a very confident boy and he uses that in a positive way."
