Blackburn Rovers goalkeeper Paul Robinson insists he has no plans to come out of international retirement with England.
A comeback for Robinson, who quit the international scene in August 2010, has been mooted following Fabio Capello's departure as manager.
However, the shot-stopper believes his decision to turn his back on the Three Lions has benfitted him and that he is not considering making a comeback as he is focused on doing his best for Blackburn.
"It's not about there being too many bad memories in the past," said Robinson. "It's just I'm enjoying playing for Blackburn Rovers and I'm concentrating on that.
"I'm just focusing on keeping Blackburn in the Premier League. Being away from England has definitely helped. It has helped me as a person and as a player.
"I've been out of that for a while now and it has helped me enjoy my football.
"I love playing my football here. I love being part of the team and the club's set-up and there is nothing to change at the moment.
"There is nothing else to worry about. That is the main reason I retired from international football. I can recharge the batteries more.
"I'm 32 and feel I can benefit more from staying with my own team, working on my own game and maybe having a rest when needed rather than training every day and having to sit and watch a game that I am not involved in."
Robinson also revealed he is relishing the responsibility of captaining Rovers following the departures of Ryan Nelsen and Christopher Samba.
The former Leeds and Spurs player, who has kept clean sheets in his last two games, believes he is reaching his prime and that there is still more to come from him.
"I'm enjoying my football and really enjoying the role of captain," added Robinson. "I think that might have given me more of a lift and I'm in a good run of form at the moment, as is the team. It always helps when the team is playing well.
"I do feel as though I've been around for ever but I'm only 32 so, in goalkeeping terms, I've still got a few years left in me.
"Hopefully I'm coming into my prime now. There is always time for development and hopefully I can get better."
