Busquets was the only remaining member from Spain's 2010 World Cup-winning team in the current squad.

Busquets is Spain's third-most capped player with 143 games to his name, only behind Sergio Ramos (180) and former captain Iker Casillas (167). Despite scoring just 2 goals in a career spanning 13 years, he was held in high esteem by his teammates and countrymen.

Vicente del Bosque was the team manager when Busquets made his debut in 2009. He would go on to form a glorious partnership with Xabi Alonso in the midfield. His accomplishments include winning the 2010 FIFA World Cup and the 2012 Euros with a Spanish team that dominated the sport for four consecutive years.
