Ross Barkley has said that his appearances for England have helped improve his form for Everton.
The 21-year-old scored during England's 3-0 victory over Lithuania earlier this month.
"I took a lot of confidence from the England games. Playing for your country is a dream for any player," Barkley told The Mirror.
"I took my club form into the England games and from there tried to take my form back to the club.
"As a young player, you need all the experience you can get and I'm getting it."
The Everton academy graduate scored against Arsenal on Saturday.
