The Norwich City keeper told the clubs official website: Its a real honour for me and hopefully its an indication as to how far I have developed as a player with Norwich City and how far weve developed as a squad at Norwich. I think this call-up is a testament to the performance of all the lads at the club who have been brilliant to work with and also to Paul Lambert, who gave me the opportunity to come to Norwich and continue my development as a player. Playing for my country has been a dream of mine, of course it has. I think as a professional you always want to progress as high as you can within the game and its fantastic to get the chance to work with the England staff and players. Im under no illusions as to the quality of Joe Hart and Rob Green and that I will be number three keeper. But Im really looking forward to training with them and getting down to some hard work. Ruddy will now meet up with his new England colleagues next week ahead of warm-up matches away to Norway on May 26 and Belgium on June 2 at Wembley. Ruddy is scheduled to marry his partner Laura on the day of Englands game against Belgium and had been bracing himself for the possibility of having to cancel the wedding but hes been given special dispensation by the FA to attend his wedding. Im absolutely delighted and so grateful to the Football Association for agreeing to let me go ahead and get married. It would have been a nightmare after one and a half years of planning to have to postpone the wedding so its a major relief that we can still go ahead.
