Bayer Leverkusen striker Lucas Alario is aware that he has to play regularly to stay in the Argentine national team.

After starting on the bench six times in a row, Alario was in the line-up for Saturday's 2-1 win over Schalke 04, and the striker repaid the faith of Leverkusen coach Peter Bosz by scoring twice.

"We all have to accept the decisions the coach makes. This time, it was fortunately possible for me to show what I can do," Alario told Kicker and added:

"I've had the chance to play for the national team this year, and of course you want to stay in the coach's sights. You have to play to do so."

Alario has recently been linked with a January departure.

The 27-year-old has scored 29 goals in 78 appearances for Leverkusen since he joined the club from River Plate in 2017.
