Would using hreflang (sitemap) / sub-directories help with international Google rankings (SEO) for English speaking countries like Australia, UK, Canada, Ireland?

Use hreflang for language and regional URLs

For example, based on Google's example in the link above would using "en-ca", "en-au", "en-ie", etc. for my hreflang tag in my sitemap and as the sub-directories help with my rankings on international Google sites? Or should I just use "en" / "x-default" for Australia, UK, Canada, Ireland?

<link rel="alternate" href="../en-ie" hreflang="en-ie" />
<link rel="alternate" href="../en-ca" hreflang="en-ca" />
<link rel="alternate" href="../en-au" hreflang="en-au" />
<link rel="alternate" href="../en" hreflang="x-default" />

Thank you!
