Ings has won one solitary England cap so far in a 2015 European qualifier against Lithuania when Roy Hodgson was in charge.
He said: “A run of games under my belt is the first thing really but it's in the back of my mind.
“I would never give up on that dream having tasted it but for now I just want to play as many games as I can.
“There's so much talent in this country. It's a huge challenge but I'm never going to give up on it."
