Bitter sweet draw for man of the match Iniesta

10 June 2012 09:47

Andres Iniesta said he had bitter-sweet feelings after winning the man-of-the-match award following a 1-1 draw with Italy in their Group C opener.

The Barcelona star had a hand in Cesc Fabregas's equalising goal and was then named by former Portugal midfielder Maniche as the top performer.

Yet it was the lack of a victory that most concerned Iniesta.

"It's a bitter-sweet feeling having drawn as we would have liked to come out with a win," he said.

"It was an intense game against a strong team with quality players who are one of the favourites.

"We played well and I'm confident we will do well in the next two games."
