See video below. Robinson’s club manager at Tottenham, Martin Jol has leapt to his keeper’s defense before they face Aston Villa on Saturday. Jol said: ‘We have a game against Aston Villa; he knows he is arguably the best keeper in England. You could see that before the incident because he made some great saves and saved England. ‘It can happen to anyone; all the best players will tell you it has happened to them.
‘He is a tough lad and he knows you need a tough mind to be the number one in England. You need great character; otherwise you can’t play at this level. ‘England were already 1-0 down at the time, so I don’t think it cost them the game.’ Some critics have questioned why Gary Neville played his backpass towards the goal, rather than to the side as is customary when not under pressure. Others have pointed out that Robinson had ample time to take a touch, and should not have swung so wildly at the ball.
