Ruddy cools England hopes
Norwich City keeper John Ruddy is not expecting to receive a late England call-up for this summer's Euro 2012 tournament.
The 25-year-old helped the Canaries pick up an unlikely point in the 3-3 draw at Arsenal on Saturday, but then played down his chances of making Roy Hodgson's squad for the showpiece event in Poland and Ukraine. Ruddy believes he has picked the ball out of the net far too often this season to be considered by the new England manager with Norwich sitting on a goal difference of minus 16. Joe Hart has established himself as first choice but the options behind him are limited with Ben Foster and Paul Robinson having previously made themselves unavailable to former manager Fabio Capello. He said: "If I am in (the squad) then it will be a fantastic honour, if I am not, then I will make sure I am ready for next season. "If you had told me before that now people would be touting me for an England call-up, then I guess that would mean I had a decent season. Ultimately, though, we are judged on clean sheets, like strikers are judged on goals. "I have only kept two this year, although we have deserved more, I think that has ended my chances somewhat. If it happens, I will be absolutely over the moon, but if it doesn't I have got a wedding to look forward to and then I will make sure I am in tip-top shape for next season."
