Andres Iniesta said he knew Spain was going to win the World Cup final four years ago in South Africa.

Ahead of a must-win group match against Chile at this edition in Brazil, the Spain international is confident of victory — but not certain.

Spain must beat Chile at the Maracana on Wednesday after losing its opener to the Netherlands 5-1.

Iniesta scored the extra-time winner over the Dutch in 2010, and has said he knew Spain would win that match.

Iniesta wasn't making any promises Tuesday saying, "I feel that we are prepared to win. We had a tough start and that makes it hard for it to feel normal around us... But we're full of confidence that we can do it."
