Pedro: Euro 2016 not guaranteed

Pedro Rodriguez doesn’t feel he is guaranteed a place in the Spain squad for Euro 2016 and talks Diego Costa and Artiz Aduriz.

The Chelsea winger was called into the squad to play Italy and Ukraine but told a Press conference that he isn’t banking on going to France.

“I don’t feel like I’ve got a place at Euro 2016. It’s the Coach’s word,” Pedro said, Marca reports.

“Italy will be a good test. They’re a great team and it will be a tough game. We know the potential they have and we’ll try to show our best game.

“We always want to do well and recover our game. We know it will be difficult. We always have the hope of doing something great.”

Pedro’s club colleague Costa wasn’t invited to the group but Athletic Bilbao’s Aduriz was after a prolific season.

“Aduriz and Costa are compatible,” Pedro claimed.

“Diego was looking forward to coming but it’s [Vicente Del Bosque] who decides. I think the two of them could contribute a lot to the team.”

Pedro was speaking the day of the Brussels terror attacks and admitted he was affected by them, and touched on security at Euro 2016.

“I want to express solidarity with the families of the victims. We have to be calm,” he said.

“Hopefully there won’t be any incidents at Euro 2016. Hopefully there won’t be any problems.”
