Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque has quashed speculation regarding the position of Iker Casillias in the Spain squad.

The former Real Madrid manger has said that Casillas's position is not in danger ahead of the world and European champions’ match against Finland on September 5.

This statement came after he was overlooked in the favour of Diego Lopez for the game against Real Betis for the season opener, which Real won 2-1.

Del Bosque told Spanish radio station Cadena Cope: “We are happy with the three goalkeepers we have, even if one of them goes 10 games or so without playing.

"Real Madrid's next game is on 26 August against Granada and the Spain squad announcement will be on 30 August. I don't think there will be any changes to our goalkeepers".

On Casillas's current situation at Madrid, he said: "We have to assess the situation at all times. Iker is a unique person and someone who's quite special in the Spanish game. It’s a matter between the club and the player."

Casillas is rumoured to be considering his future at the Bernabeu in case he becomes the permanent second-choice goalkeeper at Real Madrid.

He is rumoured to be considering a January exit since he doesn't want to risk his World Cup position. Casillas has found it very difficult to find a place in the starting XI since his last injury suffering an injury in January when Lopez was signed.
