Number one. Always…

David De Gea was given the worst preparation for this summer’s Euros as Spain lost to Georgia in a friendly. 

The United keeper couldn’t prevent his side going down against the huge underdogs as Tornike Okriashvili’s goal separated the two teams. De Gea could do little about the close range strike and it remains to be seen whether he’ll be the first choice for the national side in the tournament, with Iker Casillas still the preferred number one, despite admitting it’s only a matter of time before he’s replaced by United’s player of the season.

Vincente Del Bosque has a decision to make over who he’ll choose as his number one but it will seem bonkers to many United fans that Casillas who while doing an admirable job for Porto has never looked anywhere near in De Gea’s class this season, could start over him. It’s worth remembering though, that Casillas has the experience of being the most capped European player with over 160 caps, not to mention twice lifting the European Championship trophy, which could make the manager stick with his usual number one.

Whatever happens at the Euros, De Gea’s recent statements about Jose Mourinho being a good fit at United hopefully mean the Spaniard will be where he belongs, between the Old Trafford sticks next season.
