Del Bosque: Aduriz adapted perfectly

Vicente Del Bosque praised Aritz Aduriz after his scoring turn for Spain in the draw with Italy.

Aduriz netted to level the match after Lorenzo Insigne opened the scoring, marking his La Roja comeback after six years out of the side.

“Aduriz performed well. He’s adapted perfectly to our game,” Del Bosque told reporters, according to the RFEF’s official Twitter account.

David De Gea also impressed as he played the full 90 minutes, the Coach praising him, captain and usual No 1 Iker Casillas and Alvaro Morata, who took up a few roles in the match.

“Morata played well in both positions. I’m satisfied with his work,” Del Bosque said of the Juventus striker.

“De Gea and Casillas are good. We have absolute confidence in our goalkeepers.”

Del Bosque did admit, however, that Italy were largely the better side and he added he hopes to see an improvement in the summer.

“Italy made more chances than us, but we did good things. De Gea was very restrained.

“We couldn’t have possession of the ball. We needed to risk more. I hope we’re in a better condition for Euro 2016.”
