Spain national team midfielder Andres Iniesta has announced that he will retire from international football after seeing Spain crash out of the World Cup at the hands of Russia.
After more than 130 caps and three major titles, including the 2010 World Cup, the former Barcelona midfielder has hung up his boots.
“It's a reality that this is my last game with the national team․ A marvellous spell is over. Sometimes the end is not as you dreamed it. The national team will continue to be successful because of the level of players we have and that is what they should try,” said Iniesta.
