Michu ready to grasp chance

Swansea forward Michu insists he does not feel hard done by not to have earned a call up from Spain before now and is focusing his efforts on enjoying his first time with Vicente del Bosque's record-breaking group and learning from the experience.

I don't feel that it's been unfair for me not to have been with La Roja before. It's very difficult to get here. There are a lot of top-quality players in Spain who aren't here.

I don't know him that well, but the coach seems to me a fair person.

For any player, being in the national team is the best.

To wear the shirt of the Spain team is to wear the shirt of the best team in the world. It's a dream, every kid dreams of this and I feel privileged. It's my biggest achievement.
