Goalkeeper Joe Hart says he has "failed" in his England career until now.
Reflecting on his international career to date, Hart told The Offside Rule podcast: "It was something I didn't need to dream about - because I didn't think it was possible.
"The next thing after that is to do something with your England career and make it matter. I have failed up until now so I need to change that."
Hart is one of four goalkeepers in the squad for the final World Cup Qualifiers with Slovenia on Thursday and Lithuania on Sunday, alongside Jordan Pickford, Jack Butland and Fraser Forster.
Hart added: "I want to amass as many caps as I can, I want to be the goalkeeper who plays for England, but I would swap all of that for a trophy or playing an important role in a good summer for the nation. That's my only intention when I play for England."
The 30-year-old is on loan at West Ham from Manchester City, who he says were asking too much money for him.
"I would have loved to have signed somewhere permanent: I want to be set, I want to have goals and be driven.
"But there was too much money put on my head and people weren't willing to pay it so another loan came about.

"I was very grateful when West Ham gave me the opportunity, so it's another case of getting my head down and working hard and fighting for the cause."
