Pablo Sarabia has recently debuted with the Spanish national team and he explained how big of a privilege this is, as he kept the shirt that he wore against Romani on Thursday.

Pablo Sarabia debuted in the Spanish senior national team on Thursday as his team defeated Romania.

And he is delighted but he doesn’t want to take his call-up for granted.

“It was hard for me to get there, but we all know how good this team is and it is a privilege to be called up, the people who I am closest to know just what this means for me,” Sarabia told Marca.

“I feel comfortable on both sides, and what I like to do most is play around the box to help the team in the decisive final third of the pitch, whether with goals or assists.”

“We knew each other from the Real Madrid’s youth setup, but it was at Sevilla where we really bonded. As a person he is a really spectacular, humble hard-working guy, he always remains grounded, you will never hear a bad word from him, and the more success he has had, the more humble he has become, he never boasts,” David Soria said of Sarabia.

“The more football you see, the more you learn. He really wanted to play for the national team, and I think he deserved it long before his call-up. His output last season was spectacular, and when you face him as an opponent, he is a handful.”
