West Ham United defender Jonathan Spector was upset for clubmate Robert Green over his World Cup howler last night.
Spector, who was one of the unused substitutes for the USA has played alongside Green in the West Ham defence since both men joined the club within weeks of each other in 2006.
“I had mixed feelings. Obviously I felt ecstatic when the goal went in to take us back to 1-1, but devastated for him on a personal note,” said Spector. “He is a friend of mine and a fantastic goalkeeper and that is why he is in the England squad. He doesn’t make many mistakes like that so my heart went out to him tonight. I really felt for him. I did see him to speak to him and felt so much for him.”
