Dani Parejo: I always believed I would play for Spain

La Roja host Lars Lagerback's side at Parejo's home ground and 29 year-old is excited for the challenge that lies ahead with Luis Enrique's side.

"I am enjoying playing, my personal life is good and all the circumstances are coming together.

"I always have belief in myself and I hope to carry that forward with Spain."
