Former England and Norwich goalkeeper Chris Woods is confident current Canaries stopper John Ruddy will not let talk of an international call-up deflect his focus.
The 25-year-old has produced some impressive displays in the Barclays Premier League to help Paul Lambert's men close in on safety. Ruddy - who had a five-year spell at Everton from 2005 to 2010 after joining from Cambridge, but made just one first-team appearance - is on the radar of England goalkeeping coach Ray Clemence.
Woods - capped 43 times by England - is on the backroom staff at Goodison Park and worked with Ruddy during his time on Merseyside. Woods said in the Eastern Daily Press: "I am not surprised with John's success at all - he was with us for a number of years and he's always had great potential."
