Raheem Sterling believes being involved in England's World Cup campaign will prove beneficial as he aims to have another outstanding season with Liverpool.
Though they exited the competition at the group stage, the 19-year-old impressed for the Three Lions in Brazil, featuring in all three matches.
Sterling admits performing on the global stage was an experience he relished.
He told LoopJamaica.com: "For any young person to be involved in such a big tournament is obviously a great experience and it was no different for myself.
"It was a good feeling to get out there on the pitch and show the world what I could do really.
"Obviously on a team performance [level], we are disappointed with how the tournament went. We would have liked to be in the tournament up until now and all the way to the final, but that was not the case.
"It was a learning curve for me - an experience I am willing to learn from.
"Hopefully we build from this World Cup experience and go even further in the next four years."
Sterling is currently enjoying a summer break following his World Cup exertions, ahead of returning to Melwood to begin preparations for Liverpool's 2014-15 campaign.
"Last season we did really well as a team. This season we will just go in the same as we did last year and take it step by step, week in week out," he said.
"Hopefully we can do well as a team and a collective. We will be going out there on a positive note and hopefully we can do what we know we can do."
