The 31-year-old could collect his first cap against Sweden on Wednesday and Osman believes his club's current form has helped in his selection.

Osman said: "The good form I've shown for Everton has been recognised. I am feeling good at the minute.

"We're playing the best football we've played as a club for a good number of years.

"To find ourselves fourth in the league is brilliant and this has probably played a big part."

Osman said he had never given up hope of being part of an England squad, adding that he has always been a late developer.

He went on: "It's strange but I'm enjoying it. I've developed late. I only became a first team regular at 23.

"I've done everything late so it doesn't surprise me."
