Sunderland star Jordan Henderson will not allow himself to get carried away after a memorable week in his fledgling career.
The 20-year-old midfielder helped the Black Cats to a remarkable 3-0 Premier League victory over leaders Chelsea before heading off to make his senior England debut.
It proved a difficult baptism for Henderson as Fabio Capello's much-changed side were beaten 2-1 by France at Wembley.
But it represented another significant step on the career ladder of a young man who many observers believe has a bright future.
Now the Sunderland-born youngster is turning his attentions back towards helping the Black Cats continue their climb up the table by beating Everton.
He said: "We have proved teams can win at Stamford Bridge.
"They had some big players out, but that didn't matter. You can only beat what's in front of you.
"The win will give us great confidence to push on for the season. Anyone can beat anyone on the day, it's just how you play.
"It's too early to say where we can finish. We need to keep pushing on, keep progressing, but we could finish pretty high up.
"We have got enough talent and character in the team to go on and do well."
