Valdes: Competition Is Healthy

Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes says that competition is healthy in the Spain squad and feels that teammate Iker Casillas is in good form despite his lack of game time.

The Real Madrid stopper fell out of favour with coach Jose Mourinho which, combined with an injury, saw him spending a lot of time on the bench.

Despite this, Valdes feels that Casillas is in with a shot when it comes to being the number one goalkeeper for the Confederations Cup in Brazil.

"[Casillas is] doing well, he's the same as always; on top form and raring to go. He's very motivated, on and off the pitch. It's important we have a healthy competition, because that will benefit the team.

"I cannot reveal [who is No.1]. I am just another member of the squad and that has been the key of this team's success.

"I will do what I am asked, and Del Bosque will decide. I am just grateful to be here, I have felt like the happiest child in the world since I was called up to the squad for the World Cup.

"It is a privilege to play with Spain and to be part of this team."
