ROBBO KEEPS IT CLEAN

Paul Robinson had a quiet afternoon as England kicked-off their World Cup campaign with a 1-0 win against Paraguay.

Paul Robinson had a quiet afternoon as England kicked-off their World Cup campaign with a 1-0 win against Paraguay.

Robbo was the only Spurs player on view - Michael Carrick, Aaron Lennon and Jermaine Jenas were unused substitutes - but hardly had a save to make as Sven Goran Eriksson's men took maximum points in their Group B opener thanks to an own goal via David Beckham's free-kick in the third minute.

The keeper will be back in action in England's next game against Trinidad & Tobago on Thursday (5pm) and our next player on view in Germany will be Lee Young-Pyo for South Korea against Togo on Tuesday (2pm).
