Green in the Gills: Post-World Cup Prospects For England's Goalkeeper

There are times when people just go crazy over a game of soccer. England and other European nations love the sport. The World Cup is among us and there is a soccer fever encompassing the entire universe. It has become religion to many, but a religion that we should all have a limit on. 

Against the United States, Robert Green accidentally let a goal enter England's own net. A goal was awarded to the United States and in the end it was the difference maker. It was the difference between a tie and a Britain win. The United States will forever be England's arch nemesis in just about any sport; so this is big.

I would like to call attention to the many fans that have been calling for Robert Green's head on a silver platter. i would tell them that it was just a game and that it could have been worse. In the past, we have seen people killed due to a soccer loss. Mistakes happen. We are all human. Robert Green is a human. 

Fans go crazy and sometimes the person on the bad end of a loss, or in this case a tie, might have to go into hiding. Sometimes they have to change their name and move out of their homes. The World Cup is already on a huge stage in a stadium packed with thousands of fans. Add the millions of fans watching on television sets or computers around the globe, and who wouldn't be nervous after a small flaw?

I pray for the safety of Robert Green and his family once they get back to England. There will be more games for Green to fix his mistakes. Remember England fans: it is not the end of the world.
