The 24-year-old was only on stand-by for the Caribbean nation's play-off victory over Bahrain last month.
The success earned Trinidad a place in the World Cup finals for the first time and Samuel is eager to be in the squad in Germany.
Trinidad coach Leo Beenhakker is currently in the United Kingdom to assess the players he wants at his disposal at the World Cup.
And Samuel, who has scored twice in his last three games for The Terrors, is hoping he will catch Beenhakker's eye.
"Hopefully he'll see me play and I'll be in the squad as soon as possible for Germany," said Samuel.
"I just have a feeling that he will come over and see most of the Trinidadian boys in Scotland and England.
"He'll take a look at every single player in the side who plays over here. The club keeps the video of my goals and if I need to see it I'll get it from them.
"They notice if I'm scoring goals because the press keep updates of what's happening over here. Everyone can see how I'm playing just now, so I have to try to keep on doing what I'm doing by banging in the goals."
