He is Spanish football’s man for all seasons. Iniesta can effectively play in many roles – false winger, central midfielder, deep midfielder or just behind the striker. His willingness to play anywhere on the pitch has earned him the tag El Illusionista (The Illusionist), El Cerebro (The Brain). At the 2010 WC, Iniesta excelled in Spain’s triumphs and scored the winning goal in the final against The Netherlands. Having played a crucial role in Spain’s recent dominance at the international stage – winning the European C’ships in 2008 and 2012 – the 30-year-old will look to add another medal to his trophy-laden cabinet.
