Xavi wants to play on for Spain

Barcelona star Xavi has denied reports he is considering calling time on his international career.

Xavi, 30, has made 97 appearances for Spain and was a key part of the successful Euro 2008 and World Cup 2010 campaigns, but he has been struggling with an Achilles tendon problem.

Rumours have surfaced suggesting he is considering focusing on club football to prolong his career and could call it a day when he reaches 100 caps, but Xavi insists there is no truth to the stories.

"I want to deny that I want to leave the Spanish national team," he told Marca. "I want to go to the European Championship finals (2012) and to the World Cup in Brazil (2014).

"I don't know where all this has come from. I want to play against Portugal and in every game, even friendlies. I'm excited about playing for the national team.

"I get the feeling that my commitment is continually being doubted when I've never given any reason for that. Every time I have a press conference I have to give explanations."
