Iniestatee12_758521gm-aAndres Iniesta scored the winning goal that gave Spain its first World Cup title.

When he scored, he remembered former teammate Daniel Jarque.

He took off his blue Spain jersey to reveal a white T-shirt bearing the words, “Dani Jarque: siempre con nosotros” — “Dani Jarque: always with us.”

Jarque collapsed and died at the age of 26 on a preseason tour of Italy last year, one month after being named captain.

Iniesta was given a yellow card for the gesture, the rule when players remove their jerseys, but that was a small price to pay after he blasted a shot in at the far post.
