Robert Green messes up as England goalkeeping curse continues in World Cup

The English goalkeeping curse has struck again.

Robert Green conceded the kind of goal your kindergarten kid would have stopped to allow the U.S. back on level terms in the first half in South Africa.

England went ahead through a well worked Steven Gerrard goal but their lead evaporated in a classic English nightmare.

It was Irish American Clint Dempsey who took a very speculative shot on goal from the 25 yard line.

Green should have scooped the ball up with ease, but somehow he let it hit of his chest roll through his fingers and cross the goal line.

Usa could have snatched it in the second half when they struck the post but a 1-1 draw was fair.
