Scott Parker admits it would be an 'honour' to help England qualify for a major tournament and is determined to help them reach Euro 2012.
The Three Lions need to take only a point from their trip to Montenegro on Friday to book their place at next summer's European Championship.
Qualification would present Parker with the opportunity to turn out at his first international showpiece.
The Tottenham midfielder has become a first-team regular under Fabio Capello, eight years after making his England bow.
He is now setting his sights on retaining his place in the squad and earning himself a seat on the plane to Ukraine and Poland.
"It would be massive for me to qualify," he said.
"It is a great honour for me to represent my country and I probably speak for everyone in the squad when I say it would be a proud moment if we do manage to qualify.
"I have always said how many good midfield players we have.
"It is the manager's decision and I am sure he will put a side out there he feels is best equipped to win on Friday."
Parker will be hoping to make Capello's cut in Podgorica and he could be joined in the starting XI by club colleague Kyle Walker.
The full-back has taken giant strides over the last two seasons, with a loan spell at Aston Villa having aided his development, and Parker believes the 21-year-old would not let anyone down if he is handed his England bow.
"Since I have been at Tottenham, Kyle has really stood out," he said.
"He is a fantastic player. He is young. He has bundles of energy and is very quick.
"He scored a very good goal at the weekend (against Arsenal) but his performance before that was really good.
"I am sure if he is called upon on Friday he will be more than ready to go."
