Portugal target England 'weak' goalkeeper
font size    

Portugal striker Pauleta has identified goal keeper Paul Robinson as England's weakest link ahead of their World Cup quarter final clash on Saturday.

"I see faults in Robinson that we can exploit in Gelsenkirchen this Saturday. The England keeper is not one of their best players," Pauleta said.

The Tottenham goalkeeper has been in shaky form since the start of the tournament, flapping at crosses and worryingly hesitant to leave the sanctuary of his six-yard box.

"It is good to have team-mates at Portugal who play in the Premier League because they can tell us important details about the opposition." said the Portugal striker.

The match is a replay of the Euro 2004 quarter-final when England lost on penalties after Wayne Rooney had been taken off with a foot injury.

"I already know all about England's defence - what the strengths are and what their weaknesses are. I do not see anything inferior about Portugal compared to England." added Pauleta.
