Herrera: "Wembley is the best stage for a debut."


Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera expressed his delight at making his full international debut as a substitute against England at the Wembley Stadium.

The 27-year-old came off the bench on Tuesday evening - when Spain were trailing 2-0 - to help Julen Lopetegui's side seal a 2-2 draw against Gareth Southgate's Three Lions, as goals from Iago Aspas and Real Madrid midfielder Isco cancelled out Adam Lallana’s penalty and Jamie Vardy’s strike.

"Wembley is the best stage for a debut," Herrera told the media after the match as manutd.com reported. "It was so exciting and an honour to represent my country. I will have to frame the shirt."

On Spain's performance and team spirit, Ander said: "We will take pride from this performance and fightback. That showed our footballing ability and character. We finished the game very strongly and whilst it was important to beat Macedonia, tonight we showed our fighting spirit.

"Another team would have surrendered but we did not give up and that shows our quality as a team, it shows the togetherness of our group."
