Spain may have missed the chance to break into the top two of their Euro 2008 qualifying group but goalscorer Andres Iniesta believes it is important to try and take the positives out of Saturday´s 1-1 draw with Iceland.

Some may consider it two points dropped against the nation that are second-bottom of Group F, but having played for 70 minutes with a man less following Xabi Alonso´s red card, Iniesta would prefer to look at the plusses.

"We must look at the positive part of the result," said the Barcelona midfielder, who admitted it was no surprise that Spain found it tough to break down a hard-working Iceland side once the visitors had gone a man and a goal down.
