Joe Hart has admitted it would be "amazing" to be named the new England captain.
Manchester City goalkeeper Hart is amongst a number of players to have been backed for the captaincy after John Terry was stripped of the armband earlier this month over his alleged racist abuse of QPR defender Anton Ferdinand.
England interim boss Stuart Pearce is set to name his skipper for Wednesday's clash with Holland on the morning of the game and Hart along with Steven Gerrard, Scott Parker and James Milner has been mentioned as a possible contender for the armband.
Hart is aware that there are some big candidates for the role and that he would love to lead his country.
"I think I can speak for everyone in this room who is English and likes football that to captain your country would be amazing and a great honour," said Hart.
"But it's a long way off happening for myself. There are some big candidates and big names and a lot of caps to be put on the table. Whatever happens, happens.
"As long as I'm playing, whether it's with an armband on or not I don't care, I just want to play."
Hart also suggested he would like to see one of his Manchester City team-mates James Milner, Gareth Barry or Micah Richards get the captaincy if he was to be overlooked for the role.
"I'd like it to be James Milner, Micah Richards or Gareth Barry as they are my boys," added Hart.
Asked whether a goalkeeper could effectively skipper a side, Hart replied: "To be a goalkeeper and captain your country, I can only look at Iker Casillas and it is definitely possible."
Hart had firmly established himself as Fabio Capello's clear No.1 keeper, but insists he never assumed the role was his for keeps, even before the change in management.
"I have felt that (the need to prove himself) every time I've turned up at the squad, there are always three quality keepers who are doing well at their club sides," added Hart.
"(But) Mr Capello played me a lot and I want that to continue."
