LA Galaxy's recent acquisition is currently four short of his century having started his international adventure over 10 years ago.
"I'd love to reach 100 caps because six months ago I never thought it would be possible, but I have been given another chance - and hopefully I can reach that milestone.
"My international ambitions have always been the same, from the moment I can remember wanting to play for my country, to the moment I was selected to play for my country, to the moment I was given the armband, to the moment I was asked to come back into the team.
"In my 11 years of playing for England I have always believed we will win something at some point because we can't have the players and team we've got and not win something.
"But sometimes football is a funny old game - as the saying goes - and the expectations in England are like those in the US, where everyone is very upbeat about the sport in general."
