While success at international level was hard to come by until 2008, when the country won three international titles in a row
They regularly produced some of the most exciting teams at European Championship and FIFA World Cup events
However, the real revolution, the catalyst for success from 2008-2012, stemmed from a generation of unique players who came through the Barcelona system
As a generation reared on the wonderful possession-based style of the past, they modernised the game in the 21st century and went on to become dominant at both club and international level
Chief among this golden generation of stars, though, was one of the most unassuming players of them all; Andres Iniesta

Andres Iniesta was Born on May 11th, 1984, in Fuentealbilla, Iniesta and joined the famous Barcelona academy at the age of 12 and has never looked back
Andres Iniesta Biography
Having made a promising start to his career with Under-17s and Under-19s European Championship victories in 2001 and 2002
The name Iniesta would not be a household name for another few years yet
He made his first-team debut for his boyhood club, Barcelona, in October 2002
And by 2005 he was a regular in a title-winning squad
However, he really came to international prominence when following an injury-hit season from compatriot and friend Xavi
He was a key asset in a Barcelona side that won the league and the Champions League in 2006
At this point, the beginning of the birth of a legend was en route
Already well-respected by Barcelona fans, his international and European performances were beginning to draw attention from clubs all across the world
Fans began to hear the name more and more around the globe, crowds chanting and waving their scarves in the air… Iniesta, Iniesta, Iniesta…

Not Yet In The Spotlight
His quiet and respectable demeanour, though, meant other players were always mentioned ahead of him in discussions about top players
Never a regular goal scorer, much of what Iniesta done on a pitch went unseen, until the team would score
By 2008, though, he came to prominence in a way that few would have thought possible
Spain went to the 2008 European Championships emboldened by the growth of stars like David Silva, David Villa, Fernando Torres and, of course, Iniesta
Using his cerebral connection with teammates, Iniesta became the beating heart of a Spain side that won an incredible amount in the years to come
In 2008, he established himself as a household name when a 1-0 win in the Final seen Spain crowned two-times European champions
By 2008-09, he enjoyed a wonderful season with his club when he rose to the very peak of his form
That year, with Pep Guardiola in charge, an idol of his as a youngster, the club went through a rebirth and alongside names like Lionel Messi and Samuel Eto’o, the club won an incredible treble
Wins such as a decisive 6-2 win at the Bernabeu, where Iniesta took centre stage, and an incredible 2-0 win in the Champions League Final against a stunning Manchester United side
And united were made to look ordinary on the night as Iniesta ran the show
That Final, though, would never have taken place without him
Trailing to Chelsea of London in the semi-finals, Iniesta hit an incredible first-time hit from the edge of the box that screamed into the top corner
Sending Barcelona through to the Final at the expense of the previous years beaten finalists
Despite not being a regular goalscorer, Iniesta has a knack for scoring when he is needed most
Take the 2010 World Cup for instance
Where he scored the decisive goal in a near-perfect run to the final
After a cagey match where very few chances were presented, Arjen Robben missing a one-on-one for opponents Netherlands aside, Iniesta broke through and scored the winner
Never thinking of himself, he whipped his shirt off to show a message of support to fallen friend Dani Jarque, who had tragically died playing for local rivals Espanyol
Even in the moment that culminates an entire life’s work, Iniesta found the time to pass the message on to someone else

Andres Iniesta Awards and Trophies
The player himself has been a critical part of multiple Barcelona and Spain sides, with major wins at the 2012 European Championships backed up by a double and a treble under Luis Enrique, where again Iniesta was a star cog to their wheel
Now approaching the end of a truly stellar career, it’s a shame that sport never looks at the creator, only the decider
Having finished 2nd in the Ballon d’Or to Lionel Messi in 2010, the prize given to the best player in the world, he’s never come closer to winning an award he almost certainly deserved
While he did win the prestigious UEFA Best Player In Europe award, it would be hard to find a player of the same consistency, quality and class as the Spaniard over such a long period of time
He might not be in the headlines every week, but he’s the one who makes sure that club and international teammates get to enjoy the limelight
Recently, he signed a ‘contract for life’ with the team he loves so much, securing his future with them for the rest of his professional career. Andres, we salute you!
