Spain Boss Moreno Hints On Spain’s No 1 Shot stopper

Kepa Arrizabalaga is not Spain’s undisputed first-choice goalkeeper despite a recent string of starts for La Roja, according to head coach Robert Moreno.

Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa has started each of the national team’s four matches since Moreno took over from Luis Enrique in March.

Manchester United star David de Gea previously owned the position, but a poor World Cup and disappointing club campaign last season weakened his claims for a place in the starting XI.

Kepa made a superb stoppage-time save in Thursday’s 2-1 defeat of Romania in Euro 2020 qualifying to ensure Spain’s perfect record in Group F was extended to five wins from five games.

Despite this, Moreno refused to confirm that Kepa will be between the sticks for Sunday’s visit of the Faroe Islands and insists he does not have a preferred number one between the Chelsea starter, De Gea and Roma’s Pau Lopez.

“I don’t have a starting goalkeeper,” he told a media conference. “It may or may not change.

“I keep the same message. All three are of the top level and I really want them to make my decision difficult.

“The three have trained at a very high level. I will not say if one is my preferred goalkeeper or not.”
