Ruddy's England joy
Norwich City keeper John Ruddy will have to put his wedding plans on hold after receiving a call-up to England's Euro 2012 squad.
Ruddy is one of three goalkeepers named in Roy Hodgson's 23-man party for this summer's tournament in Poland and Ukraine, with Joe Hart set to start as the new manager's first choice with Robert Green and the Canaries star providing backup.
The former Everton youngster has received the nod ahead of Scott Carson in Hodgson's first ever selection, with Ben Foster continuing to make himself unavailable for international duty despite last minute talks with ex-West Brom boss about changing his stance.
Ruddy has certainly enjoyed a very good season for City and was watched at the weekend by England goalkeeping coach Ray Clemence, who will have enjoyed the two fine stops he pulled off in a 2-0 win against Aston Villa at Carrow Road.
The 25-year-old, who was crowned players' player-of-the-season at a club's dinner on Monday night, must now rearrange his wedding day to fiancee Laura, which is scheduled to take place on the same day as England's final warm-up friendly with Belgium at Wembley.
Prior to the announcement, he told the Eastern Daily Press: "I've got wedding insurance so I'm covered in that aspect.
"If someone would have told me at the start of the season I would either be in contention to go to the Euros or get married, I would think it would be a pretty good year."
Arsenal winge Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is the other uncapped player named in Hodgson's squad while there is a surprise inclusive for Liverpool duo Stewart Downing and Andy Carroll, who's form has been indifferent at best for their club side this season.
Canaries skipper Grant Holt in particular may feel a little aggrieved at missing out to Carroll for one of the striking spots, after his return of 15 goals.
