Kepa Arrizabalaga has said that he is happy with the De Gea competition at Spain.
“My goal is to play,” he said at Friday’s pre-match news conference. “All players want to be in the starting XI. I am obviously confident and want to help the team.
“If I am one of the eleven chosen, my goal is to win a match and that will not be easy against Norway.
“I feel good and I’m confident. It is true that I barely participated at the World Cup and now I’m able to help the team more.”
“Whenever there is a debate over a position for the national team, it is a good thing – the beneficiary is the team,” he said.
“Since the policy of rotating in the goal has become common, you have to trust yourself.
“All these comments in the press, I don’t get involved in that, we simply have to do our talking on the pitch.”
“I have matured as a person and as a goalkeeper,” he said. “I have become accustomed to playing in a different way.
“I’m now seeing more physical opponents, also of great quality, and I keep developing because I’m young.”
