Morata eyes Euros and Olympics

Alvaro Morata has reflected that his long-term ambitions include representing Spain at the European Under-21 Championships and the Olympics.

The Real Madrid man is on a run of notable goalscoring form for La Rojita, prompting calls for involvement at senior level.

However, midway through this week’s involvement with the Under-21 squad once more, the striker has reflected that his long-term targets remain at his current age category.

“This represents an award for the work done at my club,” Morata reflected to reporters this week.

“And what a player can hope for after doing well with their team is that they are called up by their country.

“To play with these players, who are also friends, it is a please and I try to make the most of it each time.”

Next up for Morata and company is tonight’s home 2015 European Championship qualifier against Hungary.

“Any game is faced with motivation, we have to polish some details and we also have to make sure that we enter the field with enthusiasm and not to be embarrassed.

“We must thank the fans who have come to see us at the stadium or have stayed near the hotel for us.

“They know that we want to return that love and we are very grateful to them.

“Our objectives? To qualify for the European Championships as soon as possible, to go there and to do a good job.

“The Coach can choose between quite a few players for the Olympics after that and I would also hope to be lucky enough to go to the Games.”
