Phil Foden has struggled to replicate his club form with England.
The four-time Premier League winner will be playing his part in Qatar with the England national team.
He is one of the highest-profile players who is expected to have a huge influence in the England squad.
The 22-year-old was asked whether he belongs to the elite group of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.
Foden said: “No, definitely not. The people you’ve just mentioned there are way above me at the moment but I like to think I could be there one day.
“It’s all about taking small steps in the right direction. I just want to take my club form into the national team. With my club form this year, I’ve been scoring a lot of goals and I want to bring that to the national team.
“Have England seen the best of me? Definitely not. I don’t think it is easy coming into a team and not knowing the players very well.
“You have to learn to play with different players and what they like best — running behind, or wanting balls to feet. Just little details like that. I have had enough experience in the England team to understand the players. Hopefully I can bring that into the World Cup.”
