Madrid - Following his "almost move" to Real Madrid, David De Gea is hoping to win back his place in goal at Manchester United.
De Gea played his first competitive match this season in Spain's 1-0 Euro 2016 qualifying victory away to Macedonia on Tuesday.
Coach Vicente del Bosque gave De Gea a vote of confidence by selecting him ahead of captain Iker Casillas for the match in Skopje, when Spain's comfortable win thanks to an own goal put the holders two points clear at the top of Group C and close to securing their berth at the finals in France next year.
De Gea's planned move to Real Madrid fell through in farcical fashion last week when the paperwork was delivered too late and United manager Louis van Gaal has not used him this season while the transfer sage dragged on.
"I felt good, I really wanted to play," De Gea, who had little to do during the game, told Spanish television.
"Now I need to keep working and see if I have some good fortune at my club as well," added the 24-year-old former Atletico Madrid keeper.
"My future will be the same as now: remain calm, keep working and improving. In concrete terms, enjoy my football. I am happy."
Fifth-placed United resume their Premier League campaign when they welcome arch-rivals Liverpool, who lie seventh in the table, on Saturday.
The match kicks off at 18:30.
