Perhaps Cesc Fabregas will get his hands on some silverware this season after all. The Arsenal midfielder readily stepped up to the plate on Sunday night to score a penalty which sent Spain through to the semi-finals of Euro 2008 and eliminated the dullards that were Italy.
Setanta reports that the Gunners midfielder believes his team deserved to go through at the expense of the negative Italians and you’d be hard pressed to disagree with him.
“It could have been any other penalty I had taken,” said a jubilant Fabregas.
“From my point of view we deserved our win. This is for the fans who came here in such large numbers.”
Will Spain now win the tournament? Or will Andrei Arshavin, a player who could be linking up with Cesc next season, spoil things for them in the semi-final?
