Spain defender Alvaro Odriozola says that "it is easy" to fit into the La Roja squad as the Real Sociedad full-back looks to make an impression at the 2018 World Cup.

Spain defender Alvaro Odriozola has said that "it is easy" to fit into the La Roja squad as the Real Sociedad full-back looks to make an impression at the 2018 World Cup.

Dani Carvajal's injury saw Odriozola given the nod to face Switzerland in Sunday night's international friendly, and the 22-year-old scored an excellent volley in his national team's 1-1 draw in Villarreal.

Odriozola's form for Sociedad during the 2017-18 campaign has seen him linked with a move to Real Madrid, but the three-time international has insisted that he is just focusing on this summer's tournament in Russia.

"I am new in the squad but it feels I have played with this group for my entire life, it is easy to fit in," Odriozola told Cadena Cope. "My club future? Right now I am just focused on the World Cup because everything else is a distraction, it can become a circus."

Odriozola scored once and provided four assists in 41 appearances for Sociedad last season.
