Cisse hopes good form can secure Cup final spot

Liverpool striker Djibril Cisse hopes a late burst of form can secure an FA Cup final place and a spot in France's World Cup squad.

The 24-year-old has had an indifferent season at Anfield but took his tally for the campaign to 17 with both goals in Wednesday's 2-1 Barclays Premiership win over West Ham.

Cisse, who started the Upton Park match in left midfield, now hopes another couple of good performances will earn him a starting slot when Liverpool meet the Hammers again at the Millennium Stadium.

Cisse said: ``I was really happy with my two goals and it was important for us to get three points against a difficult West Ham side.

``The most important thing was to get a victory and keep fighting with Manchester United for second place.

``It is always good when you play two games in such a short space of time and you can come away with a victory. I think it is a good advantage for us.

``It is nice for me to get these goals with the FA Cup final just a couple of weeks away.

``I really enjoyed being back in the team and I am determined to do my best when I have the chance to play. I am delighted I managed to score two goals.''

Cisse relished his attacking midfield role but is likely to be vying with Peter Crouch and Fernando Morientes up front for a place in Cardiff. He is determined to maintain the standard to present France coach Raymond Domenech with a strong case to take him to the World Cup in Germany.

``We looked good playing three strikers and I am not sure what the manager is going to do now,'' Cisse said.

``If I can keep scoring for Liverpool then hopefully the France manager will take note of what I am doing.''
