A Norwich City fan has created a song to voice his disappointment that Canary keeper John Ruddy is not in Brazil with the England squad.
Kit Marsden, the man behind “John Ruddy Would’ve Saved That”, is a musician from Brundall and said the song started out as a joke when he was watching the Ecuador v England game last week.
“I was watching the friendly and Ben Foster was in goal. He let in two goals and I put on Twitter both times ‘John Ruddy would have saved that’. It was a joke with friends,” he said. The 23-year-old wrote the song the next day and also filmed a video which he put onto YouTube, where the amusing song has already had more than 700 views.
Mr Marsden added: “It’s a shame Ruddy didn’t make the squad because he’s an excellent keeper. He pulled off some excellent saves for Norwich this season.”
The song is available on iTunes from Saturday.
