As Dino Zoff and Iker Casillas have both captained World Cup-winning teams from their goalkeeping positions, there is no reason why Hart could not be considered.
"Of course I would, anyone would," said Hart, when asked if he would like to do the job.
"But I didn't go into goal thinking I wanted to be captain.
"I just want to play and do my best for the team, whether you've got the band or you haven't.
"It is a great thing to play for your country. I'm not really bothered who is in charge of it."
