London: West Ham keeper Robert Green is thinking of quitting England after Ben Foster stepped down to focus on his club career with Birmingham.
The England team’s goalkeeping situation will be in turmoil if Green packs in before the Euro 2012 qualifier with Switzerland on June 4.
Green has not played for his country since his terrible mistake against the USA in the opening game at the 2010 World Cup.
His slip cost England victory and manager Fabio Capello has not put any faith in him since, a local daily reported.
Green expected to play a part in the recent friendly with Ghana but was left out.
Following the match, Green, 31, had discussions with the England coaching staff and told them he was quitting.
They tried to talk him out of it but there have been no further talks and no one in the Three Lions camp knows if Green will be available or not.
