Barcelona great Andres Iniesta to decide 'next week' between China and Japan

Iniesta told Onda Cero radio that "if nothing unusual happens, this World Cup will be my last participation with the Spanish national team".

Iniesta scored the winning goal for Spain at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, where La Furia Roja defeated The Netherlands 1-0 in the final to lift the FIFA World Cup trophy, their first ever triumph in the FIFA Mundial.

Iniesta announced last month that he would leave Spanish club Barcelona after 16 seasons.

FC Barcelona have published the commemorative shirt dedicated to Andrés Iniesta, who on Sunday against Real Sociedad will play his final game with the club.

Iniesta has made 43 appearances in all competitions this season, helping Barca win La Liga and the Copa del Rey.
