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.
