Enjoy the stroller down of the map to see ‘The Artist’ and his great work …

2006: Final Super-Sub
Iniesta later admitted his “bleeding” when he learned he was on the bench against Arsenal in the 2008 Champions League final.
At half-time, Barাa reduced the deficit to 1-0 with the introduction of a midfielder by Frank Rizcard Edmilson. This proved to be important.
Samuel Eto’o’s teammates Henrik Larson and Giuliano Beltiti were likely to touch on to secure a 2-1 victory, but Iniesta’s arrival was the catalyst for a comeback. Future teammate Thierry Henry, who was at Arsenal’s side, recalled: “The man who really killed me was Andres. When he arrived, everything changed.”
2009: Stamford Bridge at Instasto
Chelsea fans may think of this Champions League semi-final second leg as a string of questioning refereeing decisions, but there is a moment that will stay with Bar্সa fans forever.
The Catalans had moments to come out of Michael Asian’s strike, but they missed their target when Injastre was injured in the third minute from outside the box.
Bar হারিয়েa beat Manchester United in the final to win the first leg of the Pep Guardiola trio. Iniesta’s goal made it all possible.

2010: World Cup Glory
Iniesta recalled his winning goal in extra time in the 2010 World Cup final as a moment of clarity, when the world seemed to be moving slowly.
That sense of peace was a far cry from the years leading up to the tournament, where the players struggled badly with mental and emotional anxiety despite their success on the pitch. “It wasn’t like anything,” he recalled in his book, The Artist: Being Iniesta.
The loss of his friend Danny Jerk in 2009 – the Espanyol defender who died just 2 years old – had a profound effect on Iniesta and the celebration of Spain’s first World Cup victory by pulling off his shirt to convey a message at the bottom of the reading was just right: “Danny Zarq, always ours Stay with. “

2010: A Clিকsico for ages
Guardiola’s Barাa reached the top in 2010-11, and arguably their greatest performance came against Real Madrid in November 2010.
Jose Mourinho’s first taste of the Clasico as Madrid coach ended with a 5-0 batting line-up at the Camp Nou where Iniesta, Xavi and Sergio Busquets dominated.
He was not on goal – Xavi (from Iniesta Pass), Pedro, David Villa (twice) and Jeffrey were on the scoresheet – but Iniesta’s performance indicated his position as one of the best midfielders on the planet.

2011: United back carousel
Alex Ferguson is more famous for facing Xavi and Iniesta midfield after losing 2-0 to Barাa United in the 2009 Champions League final.
Two years later, Guardiola’s men led the Red Devils to even Dzier’s dance and secured another European victory with a 3-1 win at Wembley. Incidents like the Xavi, Baskets and Iniesta control incidents that even Ferguson found no complaints on the scoreline.
“The way they pass you enchants you.” “I would say they are our best team. They all admit it and I accept that it’s not easy to think otherwise when you’ve been beaten better. No one gave us any secrets like that. It’s a great moment for them.”
2011: Worldwide turn by midfielders
At the 2011 Club World Cup, Bar ভa reached the final against Santos with David Villa injured and Pedro on the bench. Guardiola’s solution? Let them die in midfield.
Xavi, Busquets, Iniesta, Cesc Fabregas and Thiago Alcantara (oh, and Dani Alves) all stood behind Lionel Messi 2-0-3-3. This has given Bara a grip in this game that is never lost.
Messi (twice) Xavi and Fabregas won 4-0, with Barারa holding 711 per cent, and a glimpse into the future of the young Neymar. Hart Iniesta on the side described the performance as “unique … something to remember and enjoy.”
2012: Best in Europe
Iniesta, part of Spain, won the Euro 200 under Luis Aragones before Vicente del Bosque won the World Cup. Two years later, a great modern era of international football was secured when they defended their continental crown, sending Italy 4-0 to the final in Kiev.
Dale Bosque’s squad, consisting of six midfielders and a striker, is a great sign that Tiki-Taka represents the genius of football, where the technical prowess of the pass-and-move game surpasses all others and the number nine classic has been rendered obsolete. Guitar band decided guitars are no longer cool
Iniesta was named Man of the Match, Player of the Tournament, and was crowned UEFA Player of the Year in Europe the following year.
Happy birthday, Spain is great @ andresiniesta8!

2015: History of the Champions League
In his first season as head coach, another former Bar্সa player, another trio and another Iniesta have assisted on a big stage.
Luis Enrique’s Barাa took the lead against Juventus in Berlin four minutes later through Ivan Rakitic, as Iniesta became the first player to score a goal in three Champions League finals.
Alvaro Murta equalized but Luis Suarez and Neymar won 3-1, as Iniesta claimed the man-of-the-match award in a big final.

2015: The Santiago Bernabeu stands as one
Iniesta is one of the few Spanish players to be hailed by rival fan bases and across the region – even among Real Madrid fans.
In the November 2015 Clasico, Barাa thrashed Macedia 4-0 on home turf, where Iniesta fielded Neymar for a goal and stunned himself.
Iniesta dominated that day – with Lionel Messi injured – who was given a standing ovation by the Bernabeu as he left the pitch in the 77th minute. Only two Barারa players were given such honors: Ronaldinho and Diego Maradona.

2018: INIESTA Final
Iniesta has yet to confirm that he will leave Bar বারa at the end of 2017-18, but he has ensured the delivery of the perfect screen call by any means.
Playing a relegation role for most of the season, Iniesta seemed to have saved himself for the final defeat: the Copa del Rey final against Sevilla.
Although around 34, he looked at the top of his strengths, with Barাa leading the game at his own tempo with a 5-0 win.
He even set goals for the game – exchanging passes with Messi, dummying defenders and firing at home – before another impulse was set to come out of his last-eye final, the club he will play for at the age of 12.
