Ryan Shawcross hopes he can maintain his high standards this season and catch Fabio Capello's eye.
The Stoke centre-half has long been touted as a possible England star, with his rise to prominence over recent years helping him to stand out from the crowd.
He is, however, yet to be awarded his international bow and remains on the fringes of the Three Lions fold.
Shawcross accepts that the only way he is going to alter that situation is by continuing to catch the eye for his club and that is precisely what he intends to do.
"It's just about consistency now and not making mistakes," he told The Sun.
"I hope I get noticed and that chance (England) comes around again soon and I can get into a squad and kick on from there."
Shawcross had been scheduled to face Arsenal on Saturday, before the cold snap wreaked havoc with the weekend fixture list.
The game would have represented the first time he had faced the Gunners since being sent off at the Britannia Stadium in February for a challenge which broke Aaron Ramsey's leg.
Unsurprisingly, a return date with Arsene Wenger's men had caused quite a stir, prior to the game being called off, but Shawcross insists he is now experienced enough to take everything in his stride.
He added: "All experiences can make you better and I'm growing up as a player every time I play."
