Isco played a great game yesterday with Spain in the qualifying match for 2018 World Cup in Russia. The Real Madrid playmaker started the game on the bench but in the last 20 minutes he entered on the pitch substituting Iniesta, and he scored a brilliant goal, his third one in 18 games. After the game, he spoke at the press conference and he denied all the rumors that link him with Barcelona.
Isco started the press conference ruling out any rumors on a transfer to Barcelona:” Players are aware of rumors, we are used to it, now that is less football during the break, some people have to invent stories. These days without league fixtures, the media tend to find out stories anywhere”, Isco said about the rumors that link him with the eternal rival, FC Barcelona.
The Spanish playmaker who scored the fourth goal of Spain, seemed very happy to be in the national team after seeing that Lopetegui trusts in him and also for the important victory Spain achieved against Israel.
The playmaker, who scored the fourth goal of Spain, was happy to be in the national team, because of the confidence Julen Lopetegui has put in him, and also for the victory:”I’m very happy to be here with the national team because of the confidence the coach has in me. We played a really good game, we managed to stay on the top of the group. We have a very complete team”, Isco said about his game with Spain.
Isco is not in Lopetegui’s usual line up because he knows there are many good players playing playing for Spain:”It’s not easy to play here because there are many good players in the squad, there is a lot of competition. I’m here to help in any way that I can and I am happy about how things are going”, the Real Madrid player affirmed about his role in Spain national team.
