Andres Iniesta retires from international football after defeat to Russia

Spain midfielder Andres Iniesta, has announced his retirement from international football following the team’s exit against Russia.
Iniesta, 34-year-old who scored Spain’s winning goal in the 2010 World Cup final, came on as a substitute as Spain lost 4-3 on penalties to the hosts in the last 16 on Sunday.
Iniesta’s last kick for his country was to score in the shootout in his 131st – and final – international outing.
Iniesta, who made his debut in 2006, also helped Spain win the European Championship in 2008 and 2012 during a glittering 12 year international career.
He ended his 22 year career at Barca in May when he moved to Japanese top-flight side Vissel Kobe.
He won 32 trophies at Barcelona, where he made 674 senior appearances, having joined the youth set-up aged 12.
