The Real Madrid keeper misjudged Juraj Kucka’s 30-yard free kick for Slovakia’s opening goal and is the latest error committed by the under fire shot stopper.

Casillas was recently booed by Real’s fans because of his recent errors and several pundits have suggested that the mistake on Friday night could cost him his place in the Spain team, with David De Gea being lined up to play in Sunday’s game against Luxembourg.

However, Del Bosque has decided to defend his goalkeeper and feels people shouldn’t judge Casillas to harshly.

“I thought there could be a smooth transition in Spain’s goal. Now it seems impossible…so be it,” the 63-year-old told reporters.

“It’s impossible in a civilised country to change a goalkeeper for one mistake.

“Some people are taking advantage and had already decided which goalkeeper should play against Luxembourg regardless of what happened on Thursday.

“We’ll see if De Gea or another goalkeeper plays. Whoever plays will deserve it. It’s a difficult issue.”

Cesc Fabregas has also defended his team mate and believes the criticism he’s receiving at the moment won’t affect his confidence.

“We know Iker and there’s not much to say,” the Chelsea midfielder said. “The Madrid press know him. He’s strong and dedicated 100 per cent to his team.

“He’s a great team-mate and a great captain. There’s no need to over-dramatise things.”
