Meanwhile, Mariano's club mate Marco Asensio has admitted he does not want to finish career with the number 20 shirt.

That appearance, a 3-1 win over Haiti in which he scored, was a friendly back in March 2013, meaning his global future is uncertain because he has not featured in a competitive match.

Neymar has howeverm been superb for his side this term - scoring four goals in four appearances before joining the Brazilain national team for their friendly games against USA and El Salvador.

But Mariano now has his sights on breaking into Spain's squad, with Diego Costa, Iago Aspas and Rodrigo Moreno among those ahead of him in the pecking order. Speaking on the choice of the shirt he chose at the Bernabeu, he said: 'Yes, it weighs a lot.

Mariano took the coveted number after arriving from Lyon last month.

While Mariano is relishing the challenge of taking such an historic jersey, he insists he is not scared of the pressure that comes with it.

He said, "I think it's the least of my concerns".

"I'm happy to wear the No. 7 [shirt], following Amancio, Juanito, [Emilio] Butragueno and Raul. and since I was a kid, I've seen them play with him. Sevilla were in talks with me but they know my team is Madrid, the club I love, and they understand this".

He also confessed that Real manager Julen Lopetegui's call surprised him, "I didn't have his phone number, I didn't know who it was, I wasn't expecting a call at that moment".
