Brentford goalkeeper David Raya delighted joining Spain squad

Brentford goalkeeper David Raya is delighted joining the Spain squad this week.

Raya last week received his first call-up to the Spain squad ahead of friendlies against Albania and Iceland.

He said: “It was a proud moment for me and my family. It is a dream come true to play for your country.

“I was over the moon when I heard the news on Friday, I'm very happy to go with the national team."

The Albania game takes place at RCDE Stadium, which overlooks the home of UE Cornella, the club for which Raya played as a junior.

“It will be a special moment to go with the national team to my home town. Hopefully I can get some minutes," he added.
