Cook has already had a trophy-winning summer with England, captaining the under-20s to thier World Cup win in South Korea ahead of the new season.
The midfielder believes that his time spent with the Cherries has aided his international success.
He explained: “I’ve loved every part of my time with Bournemouth so far and learned a lot of things on and off the pitch - learning a lot in training that helped me in the World Cup games.
“Playing in the Premier League is one of the highest levels as a footballer and I’ve been able to bring that into international games. It was a massive stage and the quality of opposition in South Korea was really high so my experience gave me the platform to perform from.”
The 20-year-old feels that his summer silverware shows the strength on show in the England youth ranks.
“It’s going to have an effect, hopefully,” Cook commented. “We tried to inspire people to give it a go and showed that when you play internationals you give it your all.
“A lot of other age groups have already done really well this year, winning the Toulon tournament and with the under-17s getting to the final. Hopefully that can carry on and we can keep winning tournaments and games of football.
“I’ve only had a short career so far but I think I’ve had a lot of experiences and have had ups and downs already.”
