Del Bosque defends Casillas

Spain Coach Vicente Del Bosque defended Iker Casillas after the captain’s mistake for Porto. ‘All goalkeepers make mistakes.’

Casillas’ fumble led to Porto losing to Vitoria Guimaeres and saw increased calls that Manchester United’s David De Gea take the gloves for the national team.

“Casillas made a mistake, but the important thing is that he is well and arrives in good form for Euro 2016,” Del Bosque told Cadena COPE, AS reports.

“I think he’s already cured of fear. All goalkeepers make mistakes, it’s impossible not to. [He’s at a team that] doesn’t normally face a lot of shots, [and it requires] more focus.”
