Spain defeated Georgia by 2-0 in their final World Cup qualifying game played at Albacete on Tuesday and with that, they made sure that they would be going to Brazil next year to defend their World Cup title.
La Roja ended at top position in their group with 20 points in 8 matches. France which was the other strong side in that group finished at no. 2 with 17 points.
Tuesday’s game was pretty special for Spain’s star midfielder Andres Iniesta as he was playing in his hometown. A huge amount of people had turned up to watch him play and when he walked onto the ground, he was given a standing ovation.
It would certainly have been a very emotional moment for Iniesta, but, he didn’t let the emotions get better of him. He rose to the occasion and with another superb outing, he guided Spain to the finals.
