The undisputed first-choice between the posts, David de Gea has more than justified La Roja's faith in him. If there is one thing the Spain goalkeeper has stood out for in recent times, it is his amazing reflexes, which make him a formidable opponent in one-on-one situations.

With his innate sense of positioning and height, De Gea fills the goal, though there is much more to his game than that. Comfortable with the ball at his feet, he uses his power to great effect in distributing the ball and launching counter-attacks, while his vision allows him to link up with his forwards, providing the alternative direct approach to Spain’s game.
