Pepe Reina admits he feels privileged to be a regular member of Spain’s all-conquering squad.
The Reds stopper is bemused that some players retire from international duty due to a lack of action and remains adamant he will continue to answer the call from La Roja for as long as his country needs him.
Reina said: "I can't understand why 'keepers retire early from international football because they don't feel they will have the chance to play too often.
'Just being in the national squad for any country is an honour and there is always pleasure to be taken from being involved in the best players from your country."
He added: "I will not retire from international football no matter what. When the time comes Spain will have to retire me because I will not walk away from them."
