Marcos Alonso has said he is fully committed to Chelsea and also hopeful of cementing his place in Spain’s squad after making his national team debut on Tuesday.
“[Spain coach Julen] Lopetegui told me to enjoy this experience, to be calm. I’m very happy and grateful that he gave me this opportunity. It was an important moment for me and I’m delighted and proud to be here.”
Alonso could not have asked for a better debut. “We have played the perfect game against Argentina,” he said. “It’s been incredible how we controlled the game, how we scored six goals against Argentina.
“The team has done a great job and it’s a fantastic result looking ahead to the World Cup. Argentina have a lot of qualify although they were missing important players.”
Alonso, who has made 28 league starts for Chelsea this season, says he will continue to persevere in order to be a regular in Spain’s squad.
“It will depend on the coach [Lopetegui], he has a difficult task ahead,” the former Real Madrid player said. “I just have to fully concentrate with Chelsea because we have an important end to the season. I have to continue to do things well.”
