2. Andres Iniesta

You can't have Xavi without mentioning his ultra-reliable midfield teammate Andres Iniesta, who occupies second place on this list because of his world-class technical ability.

Iniesta, who is four years younger than Xavi, has also popped up with some famous goals durring his career.

There was the memorable last-gasp goal against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in 2009, which allowed Barcelona to reach their first Champions League final under Pep Guardiola, and of course there was his winning goal in the 2010 World Cup final - which saw Spain crowned champions of the world for the very first time.
