The red card for Robert Green was as much a refresher course as a hard lesson. He will be completely certain now that he must be at his most alert when Rio Ferdinand, on current international form, is the key defender. The Manchester United centre-back had passed the ball straight to Dirk Kuyt when presenting Holland with a goal in the draw two months ago. Ferdinand varied the repertoire here by avoiding a through-ball.
Green then conceded the penalty. There were happy consequences for a team-mate, although David James should keep a diplomatic silence. Having been brought on here, the wait for his 50th cap has been shortened. It will come at Wembley against Belarus on Wednesday. His international career has had its miseries and the landmark is a fine reward for his perseverance and, indeed, improvement.
