James Ward-Prowse believes his first week with the senior England team will make him a better player.

The Saints midfielder made his Three Lions debut in last week's 1-0 friendly defeat in Germany, while he was also part of the squad for the 2-0 win over Lithuania in World Cup qualifying.

"It's been a great week for us all and obviously for me personally," he said after Sunday's victory, at Wembley.

"To get my first senior cap is a great honour and I've left the trip wanting more. It's a great challenge for us all here and hopefully it can lead onto better things as well."

Reflecting on his debut, as he came on in the second half against Germany, Ward-Prowse said: "It was obviously a massive moment and one that you work very hard for. To come on against the world champions and sort of gain that experience can only make us better players and better people, so it's left us wanting more for sure."

Ward-Prowse explained that he was able to take a lot from the week and that his sense of motivation is only heightened after the experience.

"You end up playing with the best English players and it leaves you wanting to keep playing at this level. You get inspired and want to maintain that yourself," he said.
