The Tottenham goalkeeper has established himself as Sven Goran Eriksson's first-choice goalkeeper after replacing David James.
However, Robinson knows that the competition for places means he could easily lose his starting place if he does not continue to perform at the highest level.
"You are always under scrutiny and you are there to be shot at," said Robinson.
"If you are England's number one you are the best at what you do in the country and are in the spotlight.
"It is my job to stay there and I cannot let the pressure affect me.
"If it started affecting you, you wouldn't be able to do it and I try not to let things get on top of me.
"But I've been pleased with how it has gone for England."
