De Gea Responds To Criticism After Blunder Against Portugal

Manchester United star David de Gea has responded to criticism after his blunder gifted Cristiano Ronaldo a second goal in Spain's draw with Portugal.

 
The scores were level at 1-1 when De Gea failed to hold on to Ronaldo's effort from the edge of the box and gifted Portugal the lead.
 
However, the La Roja shot-stopper is embracing the criticism and also used Diego Costa as an example.
 
"I like that there are criticisms," he said. "Diego Costa has also been criticised and he scored two goals. I haven't killed anyone, either. I'm happy with the national team.
 
"I don't see much that they support me from Spain. My own criticism is bad enough. I am happy with the support from the manager and the lads.
 
"This can happen. It's a mistake. We put on our gloves and go out into the field and we know how difficult it is. I count on the support of the coach and my colleagues to continue. I will stay calm. It was a difficult ball, I'll keep training and try to do things right. I haven't killed anyone."
