According to the Spanish daily AS, Luis Enrique’s current list contains five goalkeepers, making the Manchester United goalkeeper the sixth choice for his national team.Informaion Guide Nigeria

De Gea has 45 international caps for Spain, but his international dreams have been shattered in recent years due to Enrique’s consistent omissions.
De Gea is now behind the likes of Brentford’s David Raya, Athletic’s Unai Simon, Brighton’s Robert Sanchez, Chelsea’s Kepa Arrizibalaga, and Getafe’s David Soria due to the head coach’s preference for a ball-playing goalkeeper.
Enrique discussed his alternatives between the posts earlier this year and provided insight into the reasons why De Gea may be left out.

Speaking in June, Enrique said: “I look to have three starting goalkeepers and I think that right now I have them.
“Honestly. I wouldn’t have an issue with any of the three of them starting.
“Unai has accumulated some interesting experience. A goalkeeper should start the play and generate the first superiority, they must dominate the aerial play.
“I need a goalkeeper that transmits peace and calmness to me, that doesn’t mean they won’t make mistakes, errors are part of football. What they generate I like a lot.” Jamb Result
