Injured England keeper breaks his wedding ring finger a week before his big day (his wedding, not Euro 2012)

The Norwich City goalkeeper John Ruddy has been forced to pull out of England's Euro 2012 squad because of a broken finger.

However, it has got worse: he has revealed it was his wedding ring finger - with just over a week to go before his big day:


Thank you for the messages, gutted but determined to come back better next season, can’t wait for the wedding now! #everycloud


Taken lots of positives from the 2 days training, and the biggest positive is that it happened with England before a major tournament!


Also to everyone who has asked…as if it wasn’t unlucky enough, it IS my ring finger and also my first ever broken bone!

There is more on Euro 2012 on the ITV Sport website.
