The winger has high hopes for Tuesday's friendly against Argentina: "We have a great team but it makes no sense debating whether we are favourites to win the World Cup".

Las Rozas de Madrid

Lucas Vázquez, who was given a 20-minute run-out in last night's 1-1 friendly draw against Germany, joined Saúl to attend the media in Saturday's afternoon's press conference and looked ahead to Tuesday's meeting with Argentina.

Happy to be handed minutes

Sensations coming on as a late sub in Düsseldorf: "Hopefully, there will be much more to see of me with the national team. I'm enjoying the playing time I have been getting and the opportunities to play - it's the best way to see the qualities a player has".

Good moment for Spain: "We're full of hope. We are playing well as a team, the philosophy is sensational… Now's the moment when we have to get down to hard work so that we are ready when our objectives come along. We're on the right path".

Spain as favourites at 2018 Russia: "We have to be realistic: we have a fantastic national team, with some of the top players around, but it's pointless discussing whether we are favourites or not; the only thing we can do is work hard, know where our virtues lie and make sure we arrive in the best possible conditions, after that we can try and win the World Cup".

Facing Real Madrid team mates

On the opposite team to Toni Kroos: "I did get a chance to chat to Toni afterwards but we didn't have enough time to go over the game. It was more just to say hello and that was that".

Messi, could be ruled out of Tuesday's friendly: "Argentina have great players… It looks like Messi is going to be doubtful right up until the last minute. We always want to play against the best players; so if Messi players, then even better".

The difference between when Isco plays with Real Madrid and with Spain: "That's a difficult one for me to answer, it's not really my specialty - it's the coaches who decide on the line-ups… Isco is doing really well, he's training well, he's happy; let's hope we continue enjoying his football for a long time to come".
