Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta says Spain won't lack motivation in their quest to defend the World Cup in 2014.

Spain made it three major tournament wins in a row at Euro 2012 and Iniesta is already getting excited about the challenge of trying to win the World Cup on Brazilian soil in two years' time.

He said: "The secret of sustained success is that there is always something new. In Poland and Ukraine it was doing what nobody had done before.

"Now there is the chance to win the World Cup in Brazil: what more of a challenge could there be? A Brazil finals is unique; it is a massive extra in terms of motivation.

"Maybe after winning two Euros and a World Cup you would think there would be nothing else to strive for; then this comes along. It's a gift."
