Kepa Arrizabalaga put his struggles aside at Chelsea as he kept a clean sheet against Portugal on Wednesday.
Kepa has lost his place at Chelsea to Edouard Mendy after a series of blunders in goal for the Blues.
Kepa played in Spain’s 0-0 friendly draw with Portugal on Wednesday and produced a confident display, gathering a few set-pieces and making a fine late save from Trincao.
Kepa hinted after the game that his struggles at Chelsea could be due to a lack of faith from Chelsea boss Frank Lampard after attributing his clean sheet against Portugal to the faith shown to him by Spain head coach Luis Enrique.
“I’ve felt confidence, at ease. I think it was a good game and I’m happy with the confidence of the coach,” he told Teledeporte.
“When I’m needed to help on the pitch, I try to do the best possible.
“It was a game of great intensity. [We had] more control in the first half. In the second, we found it more difficult to control Portugal’s transitions. It was a good test.
“We have to be happy. We stood up today. We have to improve because we conceded a few clear chances, which you can pay for in a tournament.”
