Spain coach Julen Lopetegui said he respects Iker Casillas' contribution to the national team but said he would make no special allowances for the goalkeeper or any other players when it comes to selecting his squad.Casillas played second fiddle to Manchester United custodian David de Gea at Euro 2016 and Del Bosque admitted after the tournament that he had fallen out with the former Real Madrid goalkeeper.Lopetegui worked alongside Casillas last season at Porto until he was sacked earlier this year, and although he praised the goalkeeper's international career, he made it clear he would pick players on form and not reputation.
