Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea is hopeful of making his Spain debut in a friendly against Bolivia on Friday.
The Spanish shot-stopper, who had an excellent season for the Red Devils last term, has revealed his excitement to make his first senior debut for Spain.
The highly-rated stopper has played 27 times for Spain‚Äôs Under-21 team and was also part of the Under-21 European Championship in 2011 and 2013.
“I’m really looking forward to making my debut, although I know I’m up against other great goalkeepers. I’m really enjoying this opportunity,” ManUtd.com quotes De Gea as saying.
The 23-year-old De Gea has waited for four years and now he is keen to earn his first cap despite aware that he has strong competition, with Captain Iker Casillas and Pepe Reina are the other two goalkeepers in the squad this summer.
The World Cup in Brazil is the first time that De Gea has been involved in the senior squad, who didn’t make into the World Cup in 2010 and Euro 2012.
The defending champions Spain will meet Netherlands on June 13 in “group B” followed by Chile (June 18) and Australia (June 23).
