The 23 year old Manchester United keeper was at his first World Cup, having only made the squad due to the absence of former Barcelona keeper Victor Valdes who suffered a torn ligament in April.

Spain will however be unable to call in a replacement for De Gea as the deadline to replace injured players elapsed on June 11.

Real Madrid keeper Iker Casillas, who was culpable in three of the goals in the 5-1 loss to Netherlands, is now set to start Spain’s next match against Chile where failure to win would all but end Spain’s World Cup campaign.
