Chelsea goal keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga started for Spain for a second match in a row, as it seems the series of blunders from Man Utd goal keeper David De Gea leading to the end of the season, has cost him his place in the National team.
Both goal keepers featured in the Premier League, following Kepa Arrizabalaga’s arrival at Chelsea. While Kepa enjoyed an impressive début Premier League campaign with the West London blues, same cannot be said for the red devils shot stopper.
“I’m going to continue working as I have until now, doing my best at my club to keep the confidence of the coach,” said Kepa.
“Whoever plays will do very well.
“Of course I understand that David is sad, we all train to play and then it is the decision of the coach, and it is up to you to respond well.”
Having featured for just his fifth game for the Spanish Senior National team since his début in 2017, the 24-year-old has downplayed any potential controversy around the decision to start him for both games against the Faroe Islands and Sweden, insisting he is happy to help the team finish in the best way possible.
He said: “We are always surrounded by such controversies, but we must take it naturally.”
“I’m happy to play, to help the team and to finish the season in the best way possible.
“The season has been very long, but before we left we had these two very important commitments.
“We are happy to finish in the best way possible.”
