World Cup 2014: Casillas apologises to team-mates


Iker Casillas reportedly broke the silence in the Spanish dressing room last night by apologising to his team-mates. 

The Spanish keeper was at fault for three of the Netherlands goals, as Spain endured a humbling 5-1 defeat against a brilliant Dutch side. 

Vincente Del Bosque praised Casillas’ professionalism and leadership, due to the fact that he apologised for those errors in the defeat in Salvador. 

“When I got to the dressing room Iker was talking to everyone in the midst of the silence, blaming himself for what happened and laying the foundations for the recovery that we need,” Del Bosque said, speaking at Spain’s training camp in Curitiba, to where the team had returned after the match in Salvador. “He showed what a good captain he was by doing that.” 

Spain now have games against Chile and Australia in their remaining games in the group stage, and know that maximum points are needed in those games. 

Casillas only played two La Liga games at Madrid last season, and Spanish media are speculating that David De Gea could be instated as the numver one choice.
