Carlos Tevez believes tomorrow's friendly against Canada is his best opportunity to convince coach Diego Maradona he should start up front for Argentina at the 2010 FIFA World Cup™.

Argentina have a wealth of striking talent available and Tevez wants to impress in his team's final match before they kick off their World Cup campaign against Nigeria on 12 June.

"I always try to be physically fit. That's the important thing. I'm trying to reach the peak of my form. Then, the coach makes the final decision and we have to respect him," the Manchester City forward said.

If I play with another two forwards I'd be fine because I already did that many times.

"There is a long time to go before the first World Cup match. In training, I believe I have proved I am ready to play. I'm motivated by wearing the national shirt," he also said.

In the Canada match, Tevez is reportedly expected to play in a three-man attack also featuring Lionel Messi and Gonzalo Higuain, and he said: "If I play with another two forwards I'd be fine because I already did that many times."

Messi is expected to play despite a small knock caused by a collission with team-mate Javier Mascherano in training on Friday.
