Gonzalo Higuain: Real Madrid form can win me Argentina spot

Real Madrid's free scoring striker Gonzalo Higuain hopes his exploits this season lead to an Argentina call-up. "One always dreams of reaching their national team," said Higuain, who struck twice in Sunday's victory over Athletic Bilbao. "For me, to be called up by Argentina is what I want. "That is what I am working on and hopefully I can take advantage of this moment." Higuain added: "Real Madrid is working well. I personally hope to continue on this way, but I'll stay grounded and focus on my team duties. When we have low numbers any of the players can make an impact."
