Wayne Rooney has claimed his international career will have been "pointless" unless England can challenge for trophies on the international stage.
The 27-year-old Manchester United forward picked up his 81st cap yesterday evening in the 1-1 draw against the Republic of Ireland at Wembley.
His 35 international goals see him sit sixth in the all-time list of England goalscorers, 14 behind the record held by Sir Bobby Charlton.
But Rooney would prefer to win trophies with his country over the next part of his career rather than go beyond individual milestones in the coming years.
"Some people talk about records, but I'm not really too fussed," Rooney told Sport magazine.
"I've always felt that, to be successful, you have to win trophies.
"I could end my career with England being record goalscorer and maybe even record caps-holder, but if you're not going to be successful, then it's pointless.
"That's what I play for England for: to try and help England be successful. That's the aim. It's not to see how many caps or goals I can get - it's to see if I can get a winner's medal."
The Football Association's 150th anniversary celebrations continue this weekend as Roy Hodgson takes his squad to South America to face next year's World Cup hosts Brazil.
Rooney is looking forward to the friendly and is targeting four wins from the remaining World Cup qualifiers to make sure England are back in Brazil for next year's tournament.
"I'm sure the stadium will be full and it will be an amazing atmosphere," he said of Sunday's match.
"You watch the South American games on TV and it looks brilliant, so it will be a great experience for us. I can't wait.
"I think it [recent form] could be a little bit better. If we could've turned one or two of those draws into wins, we'd be in a great position.
"But they're tough games: Poland, Ukraine and then the last game away against Montenegro was obviously a tough game. But if we win our next four, then we qualify top of the group. So it's down to us, really."
