Joleon Lescott believes breaking into the England squad can make him a better player.
The Everton defender has kept his place in the squad for this week's Euro 2008 qualifiers with Estonia and Russia after earning his first call-up for last month's victories over Israel and Russia.
Lescott is relishing the prospect of mixing it with England's established stars and he believes he has a lot to learn before he challenge the likes of John Terry and Rio Ferdinand for a place in Steve McClaren's starting XI
Learn"I don't think I would be doing myself justice if I went there and did not try and learn from some of the best players in the world," Lescott told Sky Sports News.
"They [Terry & Ferdinand] have been playing Premiership all of their careers and I have only been playing in it once so I know they have got bags of experience on me.
"So there are a few more years to go for me yet, but I am always looking to improve.
"Awareness, composure there is a lot of attributes like heading I can work on.
"You get to learn what they like to and then you can add that to you.
"And experience plays a big part."
