Coloccini told the Evening Chronicle: "Every game in Argentina is beamed back in the Premier League and my country watch a lot of English football, so Sunday will be very interesting.
"My main priority is to play as well as I can for Newcastle and if I am doing that then I know it will be important towards getting selected for the national team.
"That is my dream to play for Argentina at the Copa America.
"It will be difficult and it's a long way away. But I know that I must have a good season with Newcastle.
"In every game, not just Sunday, we have to make it difficult for teams and get big results."
