FC Barcelona legend Andres Iniesta, who became one football's most talked about stars playing alongside Lionel Messi and Xavi Hernandez, has revealed which career moment changed his life.
Iniesta scored the winning goal for Spain in the 2010 FIFA World Cup final, and while it secured La Furia Roja's place in the history books, it was a moment that might have been even more important for the goalscorer.
The Spaniard celebrated the strike by paying tribute to his friend and former Espanyol player Dani Jarque, who had died a year before the World Cup, by lifting his playing jersey to reveal a vest with the words "Dani Jarque, always with us" written in Spanish.
It is believed that Iniesta struggled to come to terms with his friend's passing, and it was even reported that he had become depressed during the 2009/10 season.
The Spaniard recently explained that scoring the winner against the Netherlands that day changed his life as he does not know where he would be today if Spain had lost that final.
"The year of the World Cup (in 2010) was a turning point, both as a player and a person," Iniesta told Onda Cero.
"If things had gone wrong there, I do not know where I would be today.
"After scoring the goal in the final, I heard silence.
"It lasted a second or two."
Iniesta went on to show some great form in the 2010/11 campaign, scoring nine goals and assisting 15 strikes in 50 matches for Barca.
