The readers of Diario AS got it wrong. The majority of those who took part in a poll thought that that Spain captain Iker Casillas would get the nod in goal for the holders' Euro 2016 opener on Monday. In the end coach Del Bosque put De Gea on his team sheet for the Spain - Czech Republic match.

59.4% of those who responded to the question "Which keeper do you think Vicente del Bosque will pick against the Czech Republic?" expected Casillas to start ahead of David de Gea.

This follows Friday's revelations that the Manchester United man has been named in a sexual assault investigation into pornography producer Ignacio Allende Fernández 'Torbe'.

De Gea has denied any involvement in the affair, in which Athletic Club's Iker Muniain has also been implicated, telling a press conference: "It's all a lie".

Meanwhile, 40.6% were confident that De Gea will be handed the jersey for the clash with Pavel Vrba's men, and they were proved correct.
