Bellerin: I’ll cancel holidays if Spain need me


Hector Bellerin says he hopes Dani Carvajal can recover from the injury he sustained in the Champions League final on Saturday night, but that if the Real Madrid man doesn’t make the European Championships he’d be happy to take his place.

The 20 year old made his full debut for the national side yesterday, and with concerns over Carvajal’s fitness, Vicente del Bosque hinted he could stay with the squad for next month’s tournament in France.

Speaking today, Bellerin said he has summer plans but obviously they could go by the wayside for the chance to play at Euro 2016.

“Firstly, I want Carvajal to recover well and quickly,” he said. “He’s a teammate and that’s most important. As for me, I’m here until the Coach tells me otherwise.

“I’m available for whatever the Coach needs from me. I’m delighted for the experience. I had planned a holiday with my family but I’m happy to cancel it for the call of the national team.”

A decision is expected on Carvajal later today, as Spain have to submit their final 23 man squad tomorrow.
