VOTE: Will Fabregas spend the World Cup bench-warming?
Practicing sitting down?
Some wonderful players occasionally come along at exactly the wrong time, finding their stratospheric rise somewhat eclipsed by other major talents. So, while Cesc Fabregas will forever be Wenger’s number one and would probably stroll into any other country’s starting XI, might this year’s World Cup find him repeating his Euro 2008 role as bench-warmer extraordinaire?
Assuming that Xavi and Iniesta are shoo-ins as attack-minded midfielders, and that Villa and Torres will start up front, then you have David Silva to provide width and speed, and surely Xabi Alonso would make more sense as a deeper lying midfielder?
Can Spain fit all of their fine players into one team? That’s the question. Let us know with a vote and a comment.
