Gary Cahill defends Joe Hart

Joe Hart receives backing from his England teammate and Chelsea centre-back Gary Cahill.

Gary Cahill has become the latest England international to defend goalkeeper Joe Hart ahead of Friday's World Cup qualifier against Moldova.

Yesterday Hart's Manchester City teammate James Milner gave his backing to the 26-year-old, who has come in for some criticism for his performances over the last 12 months.

However, Chelsea defender Cahill believes that Hart is one of the best keepers in world football.

"For me he's one of the best there is. I've trained with him for a long time now, I've seen him up close and personal and he's top drawer," he told reporters.

"That's the way football is. You're not always going to keep clean sheets every single week. As defenders and goalkeepers there is always going to be a stage in your career you might make a mistake or two. But I think we'll see in the character, the way that he can bounce back and others can bounce back, that's the most important thing."

Hart has represented the Three Lions on 33 occasions.
