England's Joe Hart has admitted the official ball for the World Cup finals is causing major headaches for himself and his fellow goalkeepers.

Hart is competing with David James and Robert Green for the number one jersey in South Africa.

However, the 23-year-old shot-stopper has echoed the views of Brazilian number one Julio Cesar after practising with the 'Jabulani' ball during England's training camp in Austria.

Cesar, who is regarded as one of the best goalkeepers in world football, recently described the controversial ball as "terrible" after claiming it moves too much during flight.

"They're doing anything but staying in my gloves," explained Hart. "It's hard work with them, but good fun. It makes the game exciting and I think that's what they are trying to do with it."

Meanwhile, Hart claims that the rivalry in between the goalkeepers in England's World Cup squad is providing healthy competition.

"Whoever Mr Capello chooses, the other two will be right behind him, myself included," he promised. "We're a unit, we've got to be behind each other."
