Isco Ready To Star For Club & Country

Young playmaker Isco would be justified to feel that now is his time.

After his headline making move to Real Madrid from Malaga before the start of the season, he was tipped to be the future of Spanish football by national team coach, Vicente Del Bosque.

Rightly so, he has started the season full of confidence, and is already making a considerable impact at the Bernabeu.

Isco has also been included in Del Bosque’s squad to face Finland in a friendly at the weekend, but despite his upward trajectory, the 21-year-old accepts that he will have to bide his time for a starting role in La Furia Roja’s star studded midfield.

"We are all proud to come and play for Spain," Isco said from Spain’s camp ahead of their clash with the Finns.

"The match against Finland is an important one. I would like to play but there is a lot of competition in the squad and it is difficult to get a place in the team.

“There are many good players in my position."

Meanwhile, Isco may also face a challenge to his place in the limelight in Madrid, after the arrival of his new team-mate, Gareth Bale, in a world record transfer deal.

Bale’s arrival has already put paid to the Real career of one fallen club favourite, Mesut Ozil.

But Isco has no fear of the Welshman’s arrival, and says that regardless of the challenge he now faces, he is content with the way the season is progressing thus far.

"I am happy that we've won all three games this season," he said.

"That's what matters the most. I have played in three games and have the confidence of the coach and my team-mates.

"Bale? It was about time he came. Everybody knows he is a good player. He's a great player and can come to help."
