England were surprisingly knocked out by rank outsiders Iceland in the last 16 in France last month and Manchester City keeper Hart acknowledged he "didn't perform personally to the level that's required to push through to the quarter-finals". "It wasn't a good tournament for Joe, his concentration levels didn't seem to be great," Shilton told Reuters in an interview while playing in this week's Farmfoods British Par-3 Golf Championship at Nailcote Hall near Coventry.
