What Football Says

Football speaks the same language around the world

I am me and I need mobility, to participate more. Now I need to get back to my best and I’m sure this year things will go better. Nevertheless, I’m satisfied with my performance last season.
Cesc Fàbregas
Some people commented that I lacked something last season, including Guardiola. It was my fault really because I tried to be what I am not; I’m not Xavi, Iniesta, or Thiago.

I’m not asking for anything, but that’s my way of playing. It’s true I’m a bit anarchic, but that’s my style.
Cesc Fàbregas
Playing in central midfield was hard for me because I need more mobility and I’m not quick off the mark in the first few metres.

Tito has known me since I was a little kid. We met when I was 13. Under Guardiola I never really got to grips with the system.

When it comes to Cesc, we’ve known each other since we were nine years old. We don’t keep secrets from each other; we’re really good friends.

Of course I had doubts. It is the small details that decide things. Bruno Alves’ penalty hit the crossbar, and Fàbregas’ penalty went in off the post. So we were lucky. But I never had any major doubts about my team’s quality.

You can see the wealth of talent in the Olympics team. And in the current first team, players like Cesc Fàbregas and Santi Cazorla need to wait to take up a bigger role.

And what a penalty from Cesc Fàbregas to win it. It left Ronaldo as the last man standing.

• Spain will play their fourth European Championship final on Sunday (1964, 1984, 2008 and 2012). They have lost just one (1984).

• Cesc Fàbregas also scored the last penalty in the 4-2 victory over Italy in the quarter-final of Euro 2008.

• Wednesday’s match was the first time since then that a Spain match had finished goalless.

I had this intuition that we could advance if we went to penalties and that’s what we did. Being in another final is a miracle. It’s really incredible.

It’s amazing what football can bring you and hopefully we can be champions of Europe again in four days’ time.
Cesc Fàbregas
It’s very satisfying, it’s a great victory for us. We have now reached three finals in four years, we can’t believe it.
Cesc Fàbregas
I don’t mind who we play [in Sunday’s final]. The most important thing is we are in the final. Whoever goes through it will be tough.
Cesc Fàbregas
I talked to the ball four years ago [when he scored the winning penalty against Italy] and it didn’t let me down.
