Arsenal Star Fabregas named in Euro Team of the Tournament

Cesc Celebrating

Fabregas along with 8 other Spainish players have been selected in the UEFA EURO 2008 Team of the Tournament.

The midfield maestro joined Iker Casillas, Carlos Marchena, Carles Puyol, Marcos Senna, Xavi Hernández, Andrés Iniesta, Fernando Torres and David Villa in the team that was chosen by a nine-strong group of expereinced football technicians.

Barcelona man Xavi Hernandez scooped the accolade of Man of the Tournament, but Fabregas who was involved largely as a substitute should be proud of his inclusion among the continents elite.

In Spain’s first game Cesc came off the bench, setting up the third goal and scoring the fourth in a 4-1 rout over Russia. He then featured in the other two Group D fixtures before crashing home the decisive penalty in a shoot-out victory over Italy at the Quarter-Final stage.

In the Semi-Finals, too, he thrived coming off the bench grabbing two assists, the first of which was a sumptuous chipped pass for David Guiza. In the Final, Fabregas started but was replaced on the hour as Spain aimed to protect their narrow lead.

Cesc has had an excellent season at both Arsenal and at the Euro we all hope he has a good break and comes back for the 2008/09 season readyto take Arsenal to Champions League Glory.
