‘Not impossible to go to World Cup’

Jese believes it’s ‘not impossible’ for him to be in Spain’s World Cup squad after a string of impressive performances.

The young striker scored after just five minutes on Sunday in Real Madrid’s 3-0 win over Getafe.

And with stories emerging that the 20-year-old could be in Vicente Del Bosque’s squad for Brazil, he has conceded that it is not unthinkable.

“I don’t know if it’s crazy, but it’s not impossible to go,” he told AS.

“There’s a generation of great footballers, who are the current world champions, and thank god Spanish football has improved so much.

“That said, I think it’s really difficult. That’s why it’s important to keep playing, be in the side regularly.

“It makes it harder that there is this generation of great footballers who are currently in the side.

“I’m really happy with the goals I’m scoring for the team and the plan is to keep that up. I’m dedicated to taking advantage of the minutes I’m given and helping the team, which is what a player has to do.

“A target of 10 goals? It would be a big step to reach that, because you never know how long you’ll get to play for the club.

“The important thing is to keep making it difficult for the coach. Maybe I’m in the best form of my career, but I’m not settling for this, I want more.”
