Paul Robinson wants Steve McClaren's squad to put on an 'English performance.'
Paul Robinson has called on Steve McClaren's squad to put on an 'English performance' in Israel on Saturday.
England make the trip to Israel with their Euro 2008 qualification hopes hanging in the balance on account of a draw with FYR Macedonia and defeat in Croatia.
A trip to Tel Aviv is a daunting one as Israel have a good record on home soil and Dror Kashtan's side are approaching the game in bullish mood.
Tottenham keeper Robinson will be the man charged with the task of keeping Israel out and he is relishing the challenging of silencing the home fans.
"I am looking forward to it," he told Sky Sports News.
"Hopefully we can go out there and give a good English performance with our backs to the wall.
"Hopefully we can come out of adversity with a win."
