Navas determined to be Madrid success

Keylor Navas believes he has what it takes to become a Real Madrid mainstay after starring in Costa Rica’s 2-1 defeat to Spain on Thursday.

The 28-year-old struggled for game time in his first season with Los Blancos but made a string of important saves in the Leon friendly, and he reiterated his desire to establish himself at the Santiago Bernabeu after the game.

“At teams [like Madrid], there are always great players,” he told the mixed zone.

“I can’t talk about the future because I don’t know what will happen, but I have a contract with Real Madrid.

“I’m a Madrid goalkeeper and happy and proud to play for this great club.

“I’m calm and I work with humility, I know no other way. I have confidence in myself and the right conditions to do well.

“I have faith in my ability and so do many others. I appreciate that.”
