Xavi: Spain Play The Barcelona Way

empicspa460276Barcelona and Spain midfielder Xavi Hernandez, at a press conference, has claimed that the national side share the same football philosophy as his club.

“The philosophy is almost the same, dominate, keep possession of the ball and pass,” Xavi said.

The 29-year-old midfielder is an ever-present member of Vicente Del Bosque’s side and Xavi declared that it is a real pleasure to play amongst players of such quality with Spain and also with Barca.

“Their players are at a high level with a tremendous technical quality. It is a privilege and a pleasure to play on both teams.”

He warned too that, despite being favorites, Spain must respect Estonia on Wednesday.

“We are favorites but nothing is done before playing. We must respect our opponent,” he said before adding that Spain can seal their own fate by booking their place at the World Cup Finals in South Africa.

“We have everything in our favor to secure qualification. They goal is to qualify, then we will see what happens,” he remarked.
