Xavi Hernandez has claimed that Spain’s win over Belarus this evening was an important step towards World Cup qualification.
Following their three points in Mallorca, La Roja now only need one more point against Georgia on Tuesday to qualify for Brazil.
And after opening the scoring for Vicente Del Bosque’s men, the Barcelona midfielder was delighted with the victory.
“It was an important step for us tonight,” he told reporters.
“If we wanted to make the World Cup then we had to win.”
