De Gea: ‘A bit strange’ without Casillas

David De Gea has described Iker Casillas' absense from the Spanish squad as 'a bit strange'.

De Gea has usurpsed Casillas the country's first choice goalkeeper, and the Porto shot-stopper was not called up to new manager Julen Lopetegui's first Spanish squad.

"It's a bit strange to be here without Iker, he was the captain for so long," explained the 25-year-old to AS.

Casillas is Spain's record caps holder, appearing for his country on 167 occasions.
