Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga produced a stunning late save to earn Spain a crucial Euro 2020 qualifying victory over Romania on Thursday night.

Spain head coach Robert Moreno had chosen Kepa over Spain former number one David De Gea and he was impressed with Kepa’s performance.

“It was Kepa’s turn, we thought he was the right one for this game,” Moreno said.

“I’m very happy with him. He stood out because he saved us from a draw. We are very happy that he was able to help us in the end, just as each player does his job.”

Kepa has started Spain’s last four competitive games and he admits he feels the confidence of Spain boss Moreno.

“Of course I feel the confidence of the boss, but we are three goalkeepers,” Kepa said.

“The boss is the one who decides the 11 that go out to the field. What we three goalkeepers have to do is to be prepared and, whoever comes out, help the team.

“We have gone down one road and now we have another to go to Euro 2020. We want to qualify with as many points as we can get.”
