Negredo Aims To Take Spain Chance

Manchester City striker Alvaro Negrado aims to grab any chance he is given to secure a regular spot in the Spanish starting 11 after getting on the score-sheet against Belarus.

With Negredo, Fernando Torres, David Villa, Fernando Llorente, Roberto Soldado and Michu all competing for that recognized first-choice striker at the moment, the Manchester City player will hope to stake his place by the time the World Cup arrives next year and admits that the competition is extremely tough.

"As strikers we live for goals. In the last game against Belarus I was fortunate enough to get on the pitch and score the second, on other days things don't go so well. You need to take advantage of the minutes you get because the competition is tough," Negredo said at a press conference.

Negredo doubts the final World Cup qualifier on Tuesday up against Georgia will be a walkover and expects Spain’s opponents to get behind the ball and defend in numbers.

"It will be difficult because Georgia will get 11 players behind the ball, but we will keep playing the same way,” he added.

"Despite the fact that we've teams have made it difficult for us in a lot of matches, we've let few games get away from us. We have to keep the ball and take advantage of the chances we get."
