Barcelona midfielder Xavi is delighted to have collected 100 caps with Spain.

Xavi reached the landmark in victory over the Czech Republic.

"I am very happy," he told reporters. "I never believed I would arrive here but with work anything is possible."

Xavi was also thrilled to pick up a valuable three points after Jaroslav Plasil's opening goal had given Czech Republic hope of causing an upset.

David Villa struck twice to become Spain's record goalscorer and turn the game on its head in the second half.

"The match was not easy and Plasil's goal made it complicated," said Xavi.

"But Spain have quality and force. Our reaction was positive because we dominated the game and the goals finally arrived."
