Paul Robinson has found himself the centre of attention following England`s 2-1 friendly defeat at the hands of Germany last night.

Unfortunately for Robbo however, it is for all the wrong reasons as the ex Leeds United goalkeeper has taken the brunt of the blame for what was a poor team performance.

Robinson’s error, failing to deal with a cross from Bernd Schneider allowed Kevin Kuranyi to tap home from close range to cancel out Frank Lampard’s opener.

Following the error Robbo never seemed to look comfortable, the England regular being replaced at half time by David James, someone who is all too familiar with the fall-out after making high profile mistakes.

It was however James who offered the greatest support for his England team-mate: ‘It was a difficult cross for a keeper. Hopefully he will not get too much criticism.’

Too late David, he already has become a scapegoat, allowing Steve McClaren to continue to get away with baffling tactics and a team selection that left a lot to be desired.
