thumbnail Hello,

The 24-year-old attacker, who has struggled for both form and fitness over the past nine months, struck twice in the opening 25 minutes of the game at the Vicente Calderon

Pedro is confident that he has done enough to secure a place in Spain's squad for Euro 2012 after his double in Barcelona's 3-0 win over Athletic Bilbao in the Copa del Rey final on Friday.

The 24-year-old attacker, who has been beset by injury problems this season, opened the scoring at the Vicente Calderon after just three minutes of play and then struck again midway through the first half after Lionel Messi had doubled the Blaugrana's advantage.

With Spain boss Vicente del Bosque having admitted earlier this week that he had yet to decide whether to take Pedro to Poland and Ukraine, the World Cup winner is now hopeful that he has secured a seat on the plane.

"I have faith in going to the Euros," he is quoted as saying by AS immediately after the full-time whistle.

"I'm happy because it's been a tough year and very difficult for me. I'm happy with the victory and the goals.

"The first goal was very early and was a plus for us. Then we scored two more goals and we could play the second half in peace."

Pedro has scored four goals in 16 appearances for his country.
