The on-loan Watford keeper said: “This year has been magic for me to be honest. If you’d told me last January that I’d be a regular in the England squad and playing week in, week out in the Premiership I wouldn’t have believed you.
“But it’s gone very well. I’m playing with a lot of confidence and I just want to keep on pushing my way up that ladder and aim for the top for 2007.
“My objective as a footballer is to reach the very top of the game, whether that’s for Watford or England.
“I want to be the No 1 keeper in the country. I don’t enjoy being the No 2 or the substitute.
“So I’ll keep working hard and hopefully that will come.”
