David de Gea shows Spain boss his qualities with performance against Ukraine

by Sam Peoples

David de Gea was in fantastic form for Spain in their win over Ukraine in the final Euro 2016 group match.

The goalkeeper was kept busy by a dangerous Ukraine side and on more than one occasion was needed to keep Spain out of trouble.

There’s no doubting that De Gea is one of the best goalkeepers in the world yet Vicente del Bosque still stays loyal to Iker Casillas but performances like this from Manchester United’s No.1 will surely make him question his decisions.

Man United fans were certainly happy to see De Gea replicating his club form away on Spain duty:

It’s frustrating to see Casillas acting as a hurdle for De Gea’s career with Spain but all he can do is put in performances like he did against Ukraine – the rest is up to Del Bosque changing his mind.

Heading into the tricky Autumn and Winter period with Manchester United, De Gea will be very focused on keeping in great form because without that, there’s no chance he will be Spain’s No.1 goalkeeper this summer for Euro 2016.
