Newcastle winger Jonas eager to impress against Man City captain Tevez

Jonas Gutierrez is hoping a big performance for Newcastle United against Manchester City will earn him a place in Argentina's next squad.

With City skipper Carlos Tevez in the opposition line-up, Jonas knows there is huge interest in the game back home.

He said: "There are many quality players in the Argentina line-up, including Tevez.

"If I want to be in the national team, playing good football in the Premier League is vital. I'm thinking of that and of doing well for Newcastle. The Copa America is very important for us next summer and I hope to be there.

"Argentina needs a tournament, and the cup is very important for the continent.

"We need to win it, and it's very good to have it in Argentina."
