Alvaro Morata eager to show his worth

Alvaro Morata says his performances for Spain’s Under-21 side could convince Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti he does not need any more strikers.

Alvaro Morata is looking to make his mark at the Bernabeu.

Rigg: Morata can push Benzema

The centre-forward, 20, scored again for La Rojita in Monday’s evening’s 4-0 win over Albania, with fellow Madrid youngsters Jese Rodriguez and Dani Carvajal providing a goal and an assist respectively in the qualifier for the 2015 European Under-21 Championship.

Morata told reporters in Logrono afterwards that Ancelotti would be well aware of good performances by his players for their under-age international sides.

“I am sure that Ancelotti has seen the games and is following us -- me, as well as Jese, Carvajal and [goalkeeper Fernando] Pacheco,” Morata said in AS. “I am sure that he has seen us play and will take us into account. What is left is for us to keep working. I try to do well here, to help to play for my club. This helps me to put pressure on.”

With Karim Benzema currently Ancelotti’s only specialist No. 9, speculation in Spain continues that Madrid could try and sign a big-name attacker as early as the January transfer window, with €50 million moves for Liverpool’s Luis Suarez and Monaco’s Radamel Falcao again being suggested by Marca this week.

However, Morata said that he hoped he and Jese would be able to convince Ancelotti and club president Florentino Perez to put their faith in youth.

“They [the media] always talk about these things,” he said. “We will try and do the best we possibly can until the winter, to show that we can play at Real Madrid -- as much Jese as me.”

Morata now has nine goals in seven games for Spain Under-21s. He made his debut at this level during last summer’s European Championship in Israel, then claimed the tournament’s Golden Boot with four goals in five games as Spain took the trophy.

The Madrid-born attacker also scored four times in Spain’s opening qualifier for the 2015 tournament last Thursday as they beat Austria 6-2, with Jese also getting on the scoresheet after coming off the bench.

Everton’s Gerard Deulofeu and Swansea’s Jordi Amat both started on Monday night against Albania at Logrono’s Estadio Las Gaunas. Captain Iker Muniain of Athletic Bilbao scored twice in that game.
