Paul Robinson may consider England return


Blackburn Rovers goalkeeper Paul Robinson has hinted that he may be persuaded out of international retirement in the future.

The 31-year-old backed out of England duty earlier this year after winning 41 caps, having become frustrated at being used as a back-up by head coach Fabio Capello.

However, Robinson told talkSPORT:"A manager likes to get a number one goalkeeper and settle with him for however long and it's slightly different for an outfield player.

"I thought at the age of 30, 31 years old it was time for me to retire.

"I have done a lot of travelling with the England team and I was going to be making the numbers up in training as third or fourth choice, wondering if something happened to someone else I might get a chance at some point.

"I am reaping the rewards at Blackburn. I am really enjoying my football – I think my form shows that and I am in a good place at the moment.

"Never say never, but let's just say I am enjoying my retirement."
