"I am feeling good. My football seems to be going ok and I am enjoying it. I am pleased the form I have shown for Everton has been recognised," he told reporters.
"To find ourselves fourth in the league and playing probably the best football we have played as a club for a good number of years and to be part of that has probably played a big part.
"I said I'd never give up hope and as an English lad I always had that desire to play for my country. I did not give up hope. It is great. It is a strange situation to come in as a rookie but be more experienced in the game than most of the players. It is a strange position but one I am enjoying so far."
Osman has made 315 appearances for Everton.
