Everton midfielder Osman became the third oldest Three Lions debutant since 1954 when the 31-year-old took to the field to face Sweden on Wednesday night.
Now Britton, who has impressed for Swansea since making the step up to the Premier League, is out to impress Roy Hodgson and follow in Osman’s footsteps.
The 30-year-old told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: “The manager [Roy Hodgson] is showing if you are playing well in the Premier League, he will pick you, whether you are Leon Osman at 31 or Raheem Sterling at 17.
“It gives everyone hope out there that it is never too late or it is never too early. If you are playing well week in, week out in the Premier League there are people watching the games and there is always an opportunity.
"I'll never give up, I'll try and do well for Swansea and if something comes from that then I'll be absolutely over the moon.”
