Everton boss Dave Moyes hopes England speculation isn't getting to star striker Andy Johnson.

Moyes does not want one of Everton's key men bothered with anything other than maintaining his already strong work ethic.

"Andy is a terrific team player," said the Everton boss, his side now having lost their 100 per cent start to the new season.

"His team ethic and work-rates will never be questioned.

"If he does well for England it will help Everton, and if he does well for Everton it will help England."
