Porto's current goalkeeper, Iker Casillas, has insisted once again that he'd love a return to international football under Luis Enrique. Casillas, who has spoken with the newly appointed coach, isn't hiding the fact he wants to represent Spain again.

Casillas was a guest on the popular football programme 'Universo Valdano' which will be broadcast next Wednesday. "If the national team asked for you to return, would you?" "Happily." "If Real Madrid asked you to come back, would you?" "Of course. I can't ever forget where I grew up." These comments are coming out just as David De Gea's performances for the national team are being questioned. The Manchester United stopper didn't have the best of game in the crucial 3-2 loss to Croatia on Thursday night either.

And, by coincidence, Casillas also posted the following message on social media when Croatia scored the first goal. "Return to training! It's a relaxing week with the international break. Wishing all the best for my loyal followers!"
