Sevilla striker Alvaro Negredo hopes his two-goal salvo against Real Mallorca caught the attention of Spain coach Vicente del Bosque.

Negredo twice netted equalisers as Sevilla battled back to beat Mallorca 3-2 in Monday night's Primera Division clash at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

Those goals took Negredo's tally for the season to six in eight La Liga matches and the 27-year-old hopes his form has not gone unnoticed by Del Bosque.

Negredo was part of Spain's successful Euro 2012 squad but has not been called up by Del Bosque for the last five internationals.

Negredo told reporters: "This is the only way to get into the national squad, scoring goals and working well. I'll be hoping for a call from Del Bosque, and if not, I'll continue working hard."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
