The 28-year-old who is originally from Dronfield, has been rewarded for his consistency for club and country by being formally named Rooney's deputy and received the armband when the Manchester United forward was substituted in England's recent wins over Norway and Switzerland.

It's an ambition, but more of a dream, to captain your country. It's still an amazing feeling every time you put on an England shirt to go out to play. In the next few years, whether Wayne's rested or injured, there might be an opportunity to captain the team. To know that is unbelievable. To have (the armband) for the short period of time in both games felt really good. It's something I'm really proud of and I'll relish.
