Xavi Hernandez will reach another milestone on Friday when he will become only the second Spanish outfield player to reach 100 caps, after striker Raul Gonzalez.
“During the World Cup, I realized I was close (to 100) and, if the coach wanted, it would happen,” Xavi said. “I didn’t ever consider playing 100 games (for Spain) until very recently. And it is very exciting.”
“I don’t know, 100 more and I stop?” he told El Pais newspaper. “Seriously, while they want me they can count on me. For the moment, I am thinking about the Euros, but maybe I will make it to Brazil (for the World Cup in 2014). That wouldn’t be bad, would it?”
