Hat-trick maestro Isco said it was relaxing to play for Spain, following a 6-1 rout in a friendly against Argentina. Spanish midfielder Isco blasted Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane for not showing any faith in him.

Spain destroyed Argetina 6-1, with Isco scoring splendid hat-trick. Argentina who were without superstar Lionel Messi struggled to cope with the high-press and intensity displayed by Spain.

Isco stole the show grabbing his first senior hat-trick at the Wanda Metropolitano.

After the full time whistle, the silky midfielder took a swipe at Zinedine Zidane and was full of praise for Spain coach Julen Lopetegui.

"I have the confidence of the coach and maybe in Madrid, I have not won that yet," he told reporters after the match.

"That's why the national is important for me as it gives me life, if I am not starting and don't have continuity for the club then I must seize all my chances.


Isco, who has been linked with a move to the Premier League, noticeably for current leaders Manchester City in recent season and every other top European side could be on high alert as the Spaniard stated that he might be the problem.

"There are many great players at Real Madrid, maybe I am the problem."
