Spain got the qualification for the Russian World Cup on Saturday after beating Italy at Santiago Bernabéu stadium. Real Madrid players were very important to get the victory against this important team and they could enjoy a magical evening at their stadium playing with the Spanish colours. Especially, we have to highlight Isco Alarcón, the star of the match.
Julen Lopetegui, Spanish coach, included in the line-up several Real Madrid players: Sergio Ramos, Carvajal, Isco and Asensio. All four players had a great evening but Isco was the best player on the pitch, scoring two great goals and showing his great skills in the midfield. Marco Verratti went crazy, chasing up Isco around the pitch, unable to steal the ball.
Isco opened the scoreboard with a great free kick in the first half. The ball went above the barrier and Gigi Buffon couldn’t save it. After great crosses and dribblings, Isco was able to find the net in the second half with a great shot from outside the box. By then, Santiago Bernabéu stadium was cheering his name. At the end of the game, Lopetegui substituted him, so it was the perfect moment for the supporters to cheer him.
This could be a great important season for Isco Alarcón. The playmaker is gaining confidence and he’s always in Zidane and Lopetegui’s line up. His situation changed dramatically in only one year, because at the start of the past season he was unable to start the games, facing great competence at Real Madrid, with James Rodríguez or Bale occupying his position.
Now, Isco and Asensio should be the present and future of Real Madrid and the Spanish national team. Both are enjoying a great moment in their club and finding the net easily. Hopefully, Isco and Asensio can go back on Thursday fit to the Spanish capital and get another victory for their club.
