Liverpool forward Ryan Babel feels he owes the squad some good performances between now and the end of the season.
The Holland international's future at Anfield seemed in doubt in January as he appeared to be trying to manufacture a move in the transfer window.
His outbursts on Twitter about his treatment by Rafael Benitez resulted in him being hauled into the manager's office and told to just concentrate on playing.
Since then the 23-year-old has responded with some improved performances and he is starting to look like he could eventually fulfil the potential which persuaded Liverpool to pay Ajax £11.5million in July 2007.
"Every player wants to get a run of games to show what he can do. I hope I can continue to show more - if I can then I will be happy," said Babel.
"Hopefully I can give something back to the squad. I'm slowly feeling more confident.
"I'm playing games now and want to show what I can do."
The Dutchman said he wanted to try to entertain supporters by showing off his attacking skills, which would hopefully secure him a World Cup place.
"The fans expect me always to dribble and take men on. It's not always possible but I try to do it as much as I can," he told the Liverpool Echo.
"I like to take men on and hopefully I'll show more of that in the future.
"I know if I play a lot of games then I'll have a good chance of going to the World Cup."
