Last Night's Winner: Robert Green

In sports, everyone's a winner, some just win better than others. Like Robert Green, who is pretty much a loser in every country afraid of the letter "z". But over here, he'd get a one-man parade down the Canyon of Heroes.

Yes, the cock-up of all cock-ups in net courtesy of his howler hands has opened Green up to the vicious spitballs from the British press.

But redemption is possible. Here's something called Sir Bobby Charlton to remind fatalistic Brits that 1966 also had a heartbreaking draw in the first round. So buck-up, Robert Green. You have a bunch of bandwagon Yankees who'll be happy to buy you Newcastles forever should you have to relocate once the World Cup ends.
