Nathan Redmond hopes his first experience of the senior England team will lead onto more appearances for his country.

The Saints player made his Three Lions debut in last week's 1-0 friendly defeat in Germany, while he was part of the squad for Sunday's 2-0 home win over Lithuania in a World Cup qualifier.

"It's been a good experience," said Redmond, following England's victory at Wembley.

"I'm obviously delighted to have played a part in one of the games and made my debut, so it's sort of a stepping stone and a building step for me.

"It's been a fantastic week training with the lads and to finish it off with the most important thing, which was a win in this group, is a good thing for all the boys and it keeps our spirits going into next week for our clubs."

Looking back on his debut, as he came off the bench in the second half in Germany, Redmond said: "It was mixed emotions coming on. I was delighted to have done that, but then obviously the most important thing would be the result.

"But I'm delighted to have made my debut, got it out of the way, and now I can hopefully focus on putting performances in for the club and hopefully it will lead to being in the senior squad."
