Spain captain Sergio Busquets has said he “will not make any decisions” regarding whether or not this World Cup will be his last.
The Barcelona midfielder, who won the World Cup trophy with Spain in 2010, is now taking part in his fourth competition. In addition to winning the 2012 European Championship, the 34-year-old is “dreaming” of winning another world title in Qatar.
“I’m very happy to be here, regardless of whether it’s my second or fourth World Cup. I won’t make any decisions during or afterwards,” said Busquets.
“I am here to enjoy it, whatever happens. Obviously I am closer to this being my last World Cup.”
El capi @5sergiob: “Sí veo al grupo capaz de ganar el Mundial. Viendo a mis compañeros estoy seguro de que podemos jugar los 7 partidos. Pero debemos ir paso a paso. Ganar mañana contra Costa Rica nos dará confiranza. En mis 3 Mundiales anteriores nunca empecé ganando”. @tjcope pic.twitter.com/volDJeOOi5

Spain open their World Cup campaign against Group E opponents Costa Rica on Wednesday.
They have failed to win the opening match in their last three tournaments – all of which Busquets has played in – and he said it was “time to start with a victory”.

“Obviously we know it is going to be difficult, but our aim is to play seven games, fight until the end and why not win? We need to go step-by-step.
“In all of my World Cups we have not won the first game. If we win it will be really good for us to make the group a bit more relaxed after that.
“If you win this first game it is easier to progress.”
