Kepa had an incredible end of the season’ – Moreno reveals why De Gea was dropped by Spain

The Chelsea goalkeeper has started La Roja’s last three contests and appears to have claimed the No.1 shirt from his United counterpart for now

David de Gea’s time as Spain No.1 is not over, according to Robert Moreno, but the assistant coach conceded Kepa Arrizabalaga’s end-of-season form has influenced the decision to start the Chelsea man in the short term.

Kepa has now started Spain’s last three international clashes, and while Euro qualification matches against minnows Malta and the Faroe Islands did not raise eyebrows, his continuation in the lineup against Sweden did.

De Gea came under fire with Spain for his performances during the World Cup, as well as the Nations League, leading to question over his place in the squad.
