Former Spain World Cup-winning midfielder Andres Iniesta has revealed that coach Luis Enrique’s young side have a wealth of experience at club level that qualifies them for international success.
The 2010 World Champions are based on a new generation of talent with the exclusion of Liverpool midfielder Thiago and Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea.
A lot is expected from the young Barcelona duo, Pedri and Gavi, in the Qatar finals, and Iniesta confirmed that he fully trusts them, and the rest of the players.
Iniesta, a former Barcelona legend and currently a Japanese player, Vissel Kobe, added, “They are young, but they play in the first team. They are outstanding players, they bear a lot of responsibility, and they have the opportunity to do their best. It is a challenge they are excited about and aware of their ability to do a good job … Personally, I like this The team and I like the group the coach has chosen.”
Iniesta, who scored the winning goal that gave Spain its only World Cup title, wants his country to go far in the finals.
“I hope and hope that Spain will win the World Cup. My expectations are always ambitious,” he added.
Spain plays against Costaria in the opening of its matches in Group E, before facing Germany and Japan.
