England team director Andrew Flower has paid tribute to his side's Ashes victory but echoed captain Andrew Strauss's calls for England to continue winning and aim to become the world-leading team.
England are currently lying fifth in the ICC Test rankings and travel to South Africa later this year for a series against the new number one-ranked side.
"We've got a long way to go as a side," he told a news conference in London. "We've got a long way to go to where we want to be.
"We've got to be hungry as a team and I think we are. Things move on very quickly...there's no room for complacency in our side at all."
England sealed victory with a 197-run win at The Oval which saw them regain the Ashes with a 2-1 scoreline and Flower was full of pride for what his team had done.
"I'm very proud of my guys, they did a brilliant job," he said. "We knew we were underdogs, but we knew we had a chance, and we took it."
Meanwhile, it has been confirmed that Andrew Flintoff will undergo exploratory knee surgery a day earlier than scheduled and he said at a press conference that he did not expect to be playing cricket before December.
He targeted England's One-Day International series in Bangladesh early next year as his latest comeback.
