Scott Carson has thanks the Villa fans for the 'massive lift' they gave him at the Riverside Stadium on Saturday.
With the 20 odd Boro fans who bothered to turn up to support their team at home giving Carson grief for the keeper and Gareth Barry, Carson says the support of the fans was appreciated.
He told the official site 'The fans were magnificent and I can't thank them enough for the way they cheered me from the first minute right the way through the game. Wednesday night was a low point for me - it was for all the England lads. But these things happen in your career and what matters is how you bounce back. I can't turn back the clock to change what happened and I expected a bit of stick from the Boro fans. I know other England players were booed around the country as well.'
Adding he didn't for one minute 'take it for granted that our fans would defend me like they did. They really lifted me and I'm glad I could keep a clean-sheet for them - they deserved it. The Villa supporters have been great to me ever since I arrived, but this was something else, it really was.'
Great, another reason why he'll want to stay at Villa, not only has he had reason to praise the boss, now he knows the Claret and Blue army are the best!
Meanwhile Portsmouth and England keeper David James has defended Scott Carson and says he can be 'England's number one for many years'
Adding, 'I feel for Scotty Carson for the way the game went against Croatia - but that's life unfortunately. I think Scotty will without doubt be England's number one for many years. I definitely believe that. I really think he is top drawer.'
