A marvellous spell is over - Andres Iniesta

Andres Iniesta has confirmed he won't be continuing with Spain as he will be retiring from international duties.

Iniesta's Dream was to win the World Cup one more time with Spain but a loss to host nation Russia in the round of 16 saw them crash out of the tournament. Iniesta started the game on the bench and was later brought in the second half.

Spain lost the game during the Penalty shoot out.

 'This was my last game for Spain,' he said. 'A marvellous spell is over. Sometimes the end is not as you dreamed it.'

'It's bad, it's tough. It's a difficult moment, one we have been through on various  occasions - we weren't capable of going that little bit extra.'

'The critics don't matter so much, we are angry because we weren't capable of taking another step and we didn't rise to the occasion, despite trying everything.'

'On a personal level, it wasn't my dream farewell, but these things happen in life.'
