Is De Gea one of the best goalkeepers in the world? Yes. Would you be the holder in any selection? Of course. Is it possible to be questioned? As well. These three questions, in fact, could be done to him or to Iker Casillas, guardian of the Spanish goal for a decade and, possibly, the best keeper in the history of our country. The one from Móstoles was everything and, nevertheless, recurrently, it was put in evidence. Spain in short, it's like that. Going up to the altars to the idols and then letting them fall is part of the tradition. That is something known and assumed. By David and by all.
The first test of this impassive ritual for years was lived in the last friendly match against Switzerland (1-1). De Gea failed and, suddenly, the alarms went off. What if he is not to be a starter? Why not Kepa ? Why not another? Why not throw out the entire list of Lopetegui ? That, sometimes, you think. Therefore, from all fronts, tranquility was requested. “We are goalkeepers and everyone fails. Better to do it in a friendly than in an official match. I have the ability to sleep, it does not cost me anything or I give a lot of thought to this. The important thing is to help the team in the final phase of the World Cup and that things go well, “the goalkeeper acknowledged after the match.
But the reality, pulling the hemeroteca, is that the goalkeeper of Manchester United has to take a step forward in this World Cup. He was consecrated as the substitute of Casillas in the selection and, perhaps, it is in the Madrid soon. But he, too, was one of the protagonists of the alleged abuse of a minor during the Eurocopa de Francia and he has been the one of the sit-down at Pedro Sánchez during the official and governmental farewell of this summer. And stops? For the moment, few are remembered. That is why he is one of those who needs to demonstrate why he is the undisputed holder.
Arguments to do so has ample. At 27, he has been indisputable where he has played. He did it in the Atlético establishing himself as one of the great promises of Spain in the goal, and then he did the same in Manchester United, where he been indisputable with all the coaches who have gone through Old Trafford : from Ferguson to Mourinho . Everyone wants it. But not only these. Madrid on repeated occasions, has asked for him. He did it on that night of faxes that never arrived and, this season, after the departure of Zidane he could definitely land on the white team.
But for that there is still time. Chamartín are still waiting to sign a coach … and then you will see. Therefore, his goal is this World give a blow on the table and add a new international title to his record. Although, in the first instance, it will have to do against Tunisia in the last preparation match of Spain for the World Cup (Saturday, 8:45 pm). The first match in which Julen Lopetegui will have all the internationals, including those of Real Madrid, who arrive after being European champions.
At this juncture, and with him in the goal as fixed, the questions will be extended later. Spain will try to recover the goal against Tunisia and find his starting striker. Diego Costa part with advantage by gallons and hierarchy, but Iago Aspas and Rodrigo adjust more to the standards of game of the selection. With Isco the only thing left is to see the door. If this is achieved, it will be the end of the questioning of the unquestionable. Including the goal.
