Newcastle United forward Albert Luque has set his sights on a return to the first team after firing home a spectacular double for the reserves.
The 28-year-old has struggled for form and fitness since joining the Magpies from Deportivo La Coruna in a £9.5million deal in August 2005 and is yet to start a Premiership game this term.
Manager Glenn Roeder ordered him to play for the second-string against a strong Liverpool line-up on Tuesday and the Spain international responded with two long-range goals in a 4-1 victory.
Luque said: "I was very happy to score the two goals - I remembered how to score them from when I was in Spain!
"It was a good game for me, and a good result for the team.
"It is hard for me to play in the reserves - and I have to be honest and say that I did not expect to be playing in the second team when I moved from Spain.
"But life changes, and when Glenn asks me to play in the reserves, I will play - no problem.
"I am a professional, and I know I have to show the right attitude.
"I will continue to work hard, and maybe I can get back into the team for the next game against Bolton."
