The Barcelona midfielder scored the decisive goal late in extra-time of Spain’s 1-0 victory over Holland at Soccer City.
“It’s incredible,” said Iniesta. “What a joy, especially when you see how we won it.
“There aren’t the words to describe what I am feeling. After my goal, I thought about my family and all the people who I love.
“But the victory is the fruit of a lot of work.”
Iniesta added: “I can’t quite believe this yet. I had the opportunity to score that goal that was so important for my team, and it’s incredible.
“I’ve made a small contribution in a very tough game, a very rough game – there were all sorts of things happening on the pitch.
“Spain deserved to win this World Cup. It’s something we have to remember and enjoy, and should feel very proud of everyone in this squad.”
After he scored, Iniesta took off his shirt to reveal a T-shirt paying tribute to Daniel Jarque, the Espanyol player who died after a heart attack in August.
The T-shirt said “Dani Jarque is always with us”.
Iniesta explained: “I wanted to carry Dani Jarque with me and with my other team-mates. We wanted to feel his strength. We wanted to pay tribute to him in the world of football, and this was the best opportunity to do so.
“This is for Dani Jarque, for my family, for all of the people. It is the result of hard work over a long time and some difficult moments.”Like Angler´s Mail blog? Subscribe to our magazine and you will be able to access our latest comprehensive content!
