Tonight Cesc Fabregas played for a Spanish team who made history. For the first time in 44 years they won an international trophy.
Spain won 1-0 against Germany after a fantastic Torres goal. They dominated the match. The Germans looked stagnant and the Spanish looked fluid. Cesc played 63 minutes before being substituted.
Cesc described it as the best day of his life:
“It’s the best day of my life as a football player,”
“I don’t think we are conscious yet of what we have achieved. It’s the best feeling you can have as a footballer, it’s one of the best trophies you can have. It is one of your dreams, and I made it.”
“It was a long time since a team of that quality tried to play football, tried to put the ball on the ground, tried to create chances and play beautiful football. I don’t think we’ve seen many teams have success. Finally football has the success it deserves.”
“You can see how young we are, so hopefully in two years’ time we can fight for the World Cup.”
It good to see Cesc loves to play quality football and win. This is why he loves playing for Arsenal, because we play good football, we just need to win stuff!
Well done Spain, and Cesc, it was well deserved.
Now take this success into next season!
