"Of course I have seen what Phil Jones has done and think how I would love to do that one day," Lowe told the Lancashire Telegraph.
"I am close with him and always have been. You do try and follow in his footsteps. First and foremost it is all about Blackburn Rovers and what I am doing here.
"International recognition is just a bonus and obviously the higher you go the more pleasing it is.
