Malaga forward Isco is relishing the opportunity to earn his first cap for Spain ahead of Wednesday's friendly with Uruguay.
The 20-year-old has seen his fine form for the Andalusians this season rewarded with a first call-up by coach Vicente del Bosque.
But with the quality La Furia Roja boast in their ranks, the Spaniard is realistic about his chances of cementing himself as a first-team regular.
"In truth, my position is difficult to compete for, here are the best players in the world,” Isco told reporters on Tuesday.
"Gradually, if I keep doing things, I may have the opportunity to stay. I am here and will try to do well and help the team.
“We are accustomed to watching them play … they are the champions of the world and Europe. The best.
“I am fortunate to be sharing a dressing room with them and I will try to take the opportunity to be here.”
Meanwhile, the youngster also revealed how he came to learn of his promotion to the national team.
He added: "I heard I was called up from my family. My mother sent me a message, it caught me a bit by surprise. But I’m very happy. I have had all the luck and now I want the experience."
