Kepa Arrizabalaga has admitted that he understands David de Gea's frustration after Spain's goalkeeper of Manchester United was dropped.
Despite his relatively limited international experience, Kepa was selected to start because Spain dominated beyond the Faroe Islands and Sweden.
The Gea has since been left on the bench for both games, with the 28-year-old having a difficult end of the season with Manchester United, where there is still much uncertainty about his future.

As reported by Sky Sports, Kepa said: “Of course I understand that David is sad, we all train to play and then it's the coach's decision, and it's up to you to respond well.
& # 39; We are always surrounded by such controversies, but we must of course record it. I am happy to play, to help the team and to close the season in the best possible way.
& # 39; The season was very long, but before we left, we had these two very important obligations. We like to finish in the best possible way. & # 39;
Sergio Ramos, Jesus Navas and Jose Gaya all scored in the 4-1 victory from Spain to the Faroe Islands, with an own goal by Teitur Gestsson who also contributed.

Kepa then made an impression in the 3-1 victory at home in Sweden, with Ramos, Alvaro Morata and Mikel Oyarzabal all scoring.
The victories of Spain ensured that they continue their 100 percent start of the qualification for Euro 2020.
Kepa admitted that he was surprised to be selected to start both games.
He said: & # 39; I was surprised because it was not normal, & # 39; said Kepa. & # 39; I have never played two games in a row for Spain. If I add the one before it is already three. I am very happy.
& # 39; I will continue to work as I have done so far, and do my best in my club to maintain the coach's confidence. Whoever plays will do very well. & # 39;
The 24-year-old managed to keep a clean slate when Spain won 3-0 against Sweden
Kepa has only made six appearances for Spain compared to De Gea & # 39; s 39, but it is Chelsea's keeper who seems to be the first choice in goal for Luis Enrique & # 39; s side as things are now stand for.
During his first season with Chelsea, Kepa found himself embroiled in controversy when he refused to be replaced by Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final.
He ended the campaign with silverware because he helped Chelsea win the Europa League.
Kepa hopes to retain its place in the starting line-up of Spain for Euro 2020. Their next games will be in Romania in September and at home in the Faroe Islands.
