Spain midfielder Xavi has made it clear that his international retirement is still years away and that he has the ambition to continue playing for the national side at least until the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
Xavi will make his 100th appearance for La Furia Roja in tonight's Euro 2012 qualifier against the Czech Republic and the highly rated playmaker is determined to add many more international games to his tally.
"I'm very satisfied and happy to achieve this milestone. I'm confident that there will follow many more games. This is an extraordinary period for the team and I'm really proud to be part of this squad and these players," said Xavi to AS.
"I'm focusing on qualifying for Euro 2012 at the moment, but that's not my only objective. I'm eager to feature at the 2014 World Cup as well.
"I'm still enjoying my football and plan to do so for several more years. I hope to be as enthusiastic then as I am now."
The midfielder is the fourth most capped player in Spanish history, trailing only Andoni Zubizarreta, Iker Casillas and Raul.
