Alexis Mac Allister is hoping for an international call after opening his Albion account.

Mac Allister scored the first goal in the Seagulls’ 4-0 win over Portsmouth last night.

South American football chiefs have decided to resume international fixtures and will begin their qualifying campaign for the 2022 World Cup next month.

Argentina host Ecuador at La Bombonera on October 8 and go to La Paz to take on Bolivia five days later.

They also have two matches in November, at home to Paraguay and away to Peru.

Mac Allister was left out of Albion’s opening matchday 18 as they hosted Chelsea.

What Graham Potter said ahead of the Newcastle trip

He is among those pushing for inclusion at Newcastle on Sunday.

Involvement against Ecuador would mean a return to the stadium where he shone last season with Boca Juniors.

Argentina are expected to announce their squad over the weekend. Lionel Messi is available for selection.
