Meh, I think it would have been awesome if the backheel had gone in. Once you're up and comfortable, you should totally go for some outrageous goals as well.

I don't know how you can just not take all of those stats and just say that he played better than that. The passes that you are talking about are noted as being both Key passes and through ball (the pass to fabregas that set up the first goal). Opta stats are used by a huge amount of professional clubs, and sites. He didn't play better than most of the people on the Spanish team.

I think that sometimes performances transcend stats, and Iniesta is a perfect example of that. By pure stats, David Silva had a far better tournament with 2 goals and 3 assists, and yet the consensus is still that Iniesta was the more important player. I genuinely believe that if Silva gets injured just before the tournament, Spain would still win the tournament without being damaged too much. But if Iniesta got injured, there would become a lot more beatable. He's just one of those guys who improves the performance of everyone around him.
