Italy/Spain - Tormentor in chief Iniesta gracious in victory

Andres Iniesta was the man-of-the-match and tormentor in chief during Spain's 4-0 crushing of Italy in the final on Sunday, but was gracious in his victory.

"For me, it's not that important to score goals," he said modestly afterwards.

"It's not the most important thing.

"It's always been like this for me. I'm very happy we're the champions again. It doesn't matter who scores the goals.

"It's not even important if you win the Ballon d'Or. I just want to enjoy what I'm doing and if people appreciate that, then I'm happy."
