Scocco to use Sunderland berth as springboard for Argentina call-up

Nacho Scocco will use his time in the Premier League to force his way into the Argentina squad ahead of the World Cup in the summer. "I will work hard to get back to how I played in Argentina and reach the same level from Newell's," the 28 year old told the Sunderland Echo.

"I know I have to work a lot to get that. I feel good. I want to help the team, but I've had two months without a game.

"It was important that I played 70 minutes against Southampton."

"It's difficult to play in the national team, because there are many players at the top level," he added.

"But I will try to work every week and every game to try to get there. The World Cup is always on the mind of every player.

"But I know it will be difficult. I think playing in the Premier League will help though."
