Adrian speaks on Spain call-up joy

adrian12Proud Adrian has spoken of his joy at being called into the Spain squad for the first time in his career.

Speaking to the official Hammers site he said: “I was on the standby list for a couple of squads before Euro 2016, but this time around I didn’t ask my agent if I was included, then when I finished training on Thursday I got back to the dressing room and checked my phone, I had 360 WhatsApp messages, emails, texts and missed Facetime calls!”

“It’s great news and a great moment. For me, for my family, my friends, my wife, my baby and for West Ham United, I am really happy for this news. It’s so exciting to go there and train with all the international players and to give my best, as I always do here. My grandfather recently passed away and he was probably the proudest person of all about where I have got to, and he was always looking after me and called me after every game. This is a great moment for him, also, and I’ll give everything to play in the national team.

“The work has paid-off for me because I work hard. I made my debut in Real Betis and after a season I came to West Ham and have played most of the games in the starting XI.

“It’s a great moment for me. I’m still only 29, which is so young for a goalkeeper who can play for a long time, so with the new manager [former Barcelona goalkeeper Julen Lopetegui] he has given opportunities to new players to show they are ready for the national team.”

  3. At 29 he has another 10 years to play for his country,
    He needs to show great form for us first then I am sure he will play for Spain many times,he just needs to cut out his silly moments but that will come with age,
