Chelsea keeper reveals he felt at ease on his clean sheet and performance against Portugal


Kepa says that he is happy with the confidence that Spain's manager Luis Enrique has in him.

The friendly was a 'great test' for the keeper and the team.

Kepa adds that his team stood up to the test and he is happy with the performance.

"I've felt confidence, at ease. I think it was a good game and I'm happy with the confidence of the coach," Kepa Arrizabalaga 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."

Kepa excelled in Spain's 0-0 friendly draw with Portugal on Wednesday, gathering a few set-pieces and making a fine late save from Francisco Trincao.

The Cristiano Ronaldo-led team had 5 shots on target but failed to get past the Spaniard, whose performances at the national level paint a different picture than his displays with Chelsea.
