La Roja a privilege for Cazorla

Spain midfielder Santi Cazorla says he hopes to play in the Confederations Cup as it is a privilege to represent La Roja.

In addition, the Arsenal man admits that if he is not in Vicente del Bosque’s initial starting line-up then he will not be too disappointed, as it is the squad that comes before anything.

“Would I be disappointed if I didn’t play? No, I consider it a privilege to be a member of this group of players. Hopefully I’ll get some minutes but I know how difficult that can be,” Cazorla told reporters in Recife before Spain’s participation in the tournament.

“I’m supporting my teammates in our training sessions but, I repeat, it wouldn’t be a disappointment if I am not selected against Uruguay.

“The Uruguay game is the most important one right now and after that it will be the next, then the next. We have to treat each game here as if it were a final.

“Firstly, we have to play in this competition. We then have to qualify for the World Cup and only then can we start thinking about Brazil next year,” he added.
