Kaiser Chiefs have urged fans not to have a go at England blunder boy Scot Carson.

The goalkeeper, who was playing in his first competitive game last night at Wembley Stadium in London against Croatia, let in three goals as the home team slumped to a 3-2 defeat.

The result meant England failed to qualify for next summer’s European Championships and Carson was blamed particularly for the first goal after he fumbled a seemingly harmless shot and it ended up in the goal.

However writing on their blog, Kaiser Chiefs have argued the young goalkeeper should not be blamed.

“We’re writing this blog to give support to Scott Carson, England goalkeeper,” they explained on their website. “(veteran keeper) Peter Shilton said that what you need in a big match such as the Croatia one, is experience. You can't expect an inexperienced keeper to settle down and be a hero in a match like this.”

They also added that luckless manager Steve McClaren, who made an error dropping such an inexperienced player into such an important game, should not be attacked either.

“Let's not blame Scott,” declared the band, “let's not blame anyone. Scott Carson, You're gonna be alright!”

Meanwhile Kaiser Chiefs kicked off their UK tour last night. Read NME.COM's report from Exeter and check out our exclusive picture gallery now.
