Manchester City striker, Alvaro Negredo, has targeted a starting spot in Spain’s World Cup side next summer in Brazil.
With Spain manager, Vicente del Bosque, likely to play just the one striker in his team in next summer’s tournament, Negredo knows he is currently in a strong position to be that lone forward.
The Spanish striker has been in impressive form since his arrival in the Premier League from Sevilla, during which time Negredo played a key role in helping Spain top their World Cup qualification group.
Murmurs in the betfair forums suggest that the forward looks as though he could now be in the front-running to start for Spain in next year’s finals.
Negredo has been doing everything he can for City to keep his place in the Spain side. The striker has been one of the club’s best players so far this season and looks to have adapted to life in England without too much hassle.
Now, Negredo knows that his World Cup hopes lie with him continuing his form for City throughout the rest of the Premier League season and in the run-up to next summer’s tournament.
“I am convinced if I keep playing like this for City, I can be the top striker in the Spain team at the World Cup. The manager has demanded goals from me and that is my target,”
“To be the main striker at City is just as difficult as it is for Spain. But I will fight hard as I can to make it happen, my challenge at City is to win titles, I think that this year we are contenders for the league.”
