How vital is Iniesta to Spain?

With Spain already looking like potential Euro 2016 champions, the current European Champions have one man to thank for their early tournament success. At 32, midfielder Andres Iniesta is proving age is no hindrance. But why, exactly, is he so important to Spain?

Main man
No longer aided by his long term club and country partner Xavi, Iniesta is now partnered in central midfield by his former Barcelona teammate Cesc Fabregas. While Fabregas lacks the effortless majesty of Xavi, the Chelsea midfielder functions in the same role Xavi thrived in. Fabregas keeps the ball moving at a steady pace for a team that prioritises possession more so than most.
