So as the topic, hes preferred by Real 2 managers now in front of Casillas. So I wonder why hes not given any chance with Del Bosque. I feel hes more safe than Valdes and perhaps better than Reina too?

Because del Bosque has a brain. There is no need to disrupt the team harmony. Casillas is captain and deserves to start even with 2 broken hands given his past merits. Valdes is Iniesta's best friend and you don't want to rustle Iniesta's jimmies. Reina is the clown and animator after Spain lift the trophy. No need for Palop's backup to join the team.

why try to fix something that is not broken.
Lopez isn't exactly the biggest improvement his reflex sucks and distribution isn't the best.
only reason he is starting over Iker in Madrid is to prove a point that a player isn't bigger then a club.

Lopez had a good second half season last season under Mou, but it wasn't that big of a improvement. He and Casillas both leaked almost the same amount of goals last season and what helped Lopez was when Varane got to start and that helped the defense overall. Casillas this season has been a lot better and deserve the #1 spot back, but I can understand Carlo has that would hurt Lopez if he was all of a sudden benched, so he's trying to be fair with both at the moment, but Casillas has been better this season.

De Gea deserves a place in the squad more than Lopez anyway.

Yeh, Casillas has done fine for Spain and there's no need to randomly get rid of him. Also this season Casillas has done better than Lopez, so hopefully he gets his spot at Real Madrid back. Any other NT and I'm sure Lopez would have got a chance, but Spain have a lot of top quality GK's.

I see, thanks for the details. I love Casillas too so its great Spain use him as no.1 still Smile I thought Lopez was great though too. But important point in team harmony which is one of things Del Bosque has done best with the squad.

More safe than Valdes I believe that since Valdes is great but thats his weak spot, mistakes and not calm enough.

De Gea still not good enough to be Spain's GK I think, he doesnt give enough confidence.

I wish England had such goalkeeping dilemmas.

Politics... it would look strange if Lopez is playing over Iker at Madrid and then Iker gets the nod at NT. If Iker messes up, it would put VDB in a bad position.

If Iker gets the nod as the #1 in Madrid, i'd expect Lopez to get the call because everything would be consistent.
