Blackburn keeper Brad Friedel has praised Aston Villa counterpart Scott Carson for overcoming his England nightmare and believes he will be a strong challenger for the number one shirt under new manager Fabio Capello.

Carson´s blunder on his competitive international debut handed Croatia their opening goal in a 3-2 win at Wembley which eliminated England from Euro 2008 but Friedel believes Carson´s reaction will earn him a place in Fabio Capello´s first squad to face Switzerland.

"Scott is a good keeper. The best time to tell what a keeper is really made of is when they go through an adverse time. Well now you know that Scott is a good keeper. He went through some public humiliation via the media the day after the Croatia game and for a few weeks after - but he has been tremendous since," said Friedel
