The 26-year-old was picked ahead of Chelsea's Fernando Torres and is aware that this week's match with Venezuela could hold the key to his immediate international future
The 26-year-old striker is eager to shine on Wednesday in order to persuade Del Bosque that he deserves a place in the squad to travel to Euro 2012.
"I have to be prepared to take the opportunity, hopefully I can contribute my bit," he said during a press conference on Tuesday.
Soldado then touched on the absence of Alvaro Negredo who was ruled out of the international friendly with a thigh injury.
"The loss of Negredo is important but I will face the match as an opportunity to do my job."
Soldado has two caps to his name and is yet to score for Spain.
