Hart giving out fast on England chances.

Byline: NEIL MCLEMAN

JOE HART will make an emotional return to his first club Shrewsbury in the FA Cup third round on January 7. The England keeper should enjoy every minute.

Before recalling the on-loan Manchester City goalie for his League Cup game, David Moyes promised Hart "will play lots of games". Defeat last night has removed three chances in this competition to impress Gareth Southgate before the World Cup - and Hart failed to grab his latest opportunity.

Last month, he presented Wayne Rooney (left) with a chance to score a Goal of the Season contender at Goodison Park and then could not play against his parent club.

Adrian was impressive against the runaway Premier League leaders - and has not conceded in three games since.

Hart had little to do against the Gunners, but a more confident keeper might have taken out Danny Welbeck to clear the ball before his goal.

He has conceded 31 now in 15 West Ham games and looks a shadow of his former self.

So, who should be between the sticks against Tunisia on June 18? On current form, Southgate can't pick Hart.
