Real Madrid assistant coach Zinedine Zidane has revealed that he is "glad" that Iker Casillas is still the first-choice goalkeeper for Spain.

Casillas has spent the early part of the season out of the Madrid side, but he remains a firm favourite of Spain boss Vicente del Bosque.

"I am glad that Iker will be holder [of the number one spot]. He is a great goalkeeper," Zidane told reporters at a press conference.

Casillas earned his 150th international cap in Spain's 2-0 win over Finland on Friday.
