Isco revels in ‘perfect night’

Isco revelled in a “perfect night” for him and Spain after he scored twice in their 3-0 win against Italy on Saturday.

Isco’s pair of strikes seemingly booked Spain’s place at the 2018 World Cup as they now lead Italy in their qualifying group by three points with just as many games remaining.

“This is the most important match we’ve had so far, we had a perfect night and we were fair winners,” the Real Madrid midfielder told Movistar.

“False 9? It goes beyond a system, it’s more to do with the attitude of the players that start and those who appear from the bench.

“We’re a close-knit group and we’ve shown it for a long time. I had two shots and scored two goals, so I’m happy to be able to help the team on a special night, at the Bernabeu and against Italy.”
