Winger Pedro Rodriguez insists that head Coach Vicente del Bosque will be the one picking the team for Spain’s World Cup 2014 qualifier against Georgia.
“It is important to start winning straight away with Georgia,” began the Barcelona man in a Press conference this morning ahead of Spain’s opening Group I fixture.
“It will be a tough game because they will definitely take to the field with a lot of motivation to hold their own.”
Pedro scored twice in an excellent performance for Spain, who confidently dispatched Saudi Arabia in a friendly last night.
However, he was quick today to assert that he has no given right to start against Georgia on Tuesday.
“It was a very good team effort last night, we had the ball and created chances for the supporters to watch on a field that was in perfect condition. We are happy with the game and the victory.
“We have a large playing staff, and any player that is here is qualified to do a job. Yesterday players who generally play fewer minutes featured and I think it was an overall good match.
“Vicente is the one to decide [on the team]. We have very important players, with many appearances between them for La Roja.
“I will do what I have to do and work hard in training, and then if I am given the opportunity to play I will use it.”
The dynamic winger also congratulated his club teammate David Villa and Chelsea striker Fernando Torres, with the former scoring last night and the latter reaching the 100-game mark for Spain.
“It was an unforgettable night for Villa and Torres, and it was particularly good for David to score on his comeback for the national team.
“It is great for David to be back for Barcelona and Spain after such a bad injury, he has overcome an injury that we all know was very serious.”
