Busquets proud to reach 100th cap


The holding midfielder thanked everyone who had helped him: team-mates, coaching staff and family

The TVE crew had Vicente Del Bosque in the studio and Sergio Busquets from Jerusalem after the victory over Israel and the holding midfielder had a few words for his old coach: “I want to give my thanks to Del Bosque because he handed me my international debut and is very much a part of my history with the national team.”

Busquets, who finished his 100th appearance for Spain as captain of the side, recognised that for him it was an honour to have come as far as he has: “I am very proud to have reached my hundredth game for the national side and I’d like to thank all the team-mates who have helped me along this road, the two sets of coaching staff I have worked under here, and my family.”
