Cesc Fabregas: The Spanish key

Francesc Fàbregas Soler was born on May, 4th, 1987, in Arenys del Mar, a little town of 15.000 habitants and main port of Barcelona. Ten years later, while Cesc watch Luis Figo as her main idol, his father, a Catalan mason, made a good use of the approximation with the Barcelona FC and attended him to start to play football in La Masia.

In 2003 in Finland, during the FIFA U-17 World Championship he made five goals but couldn’t hide the disappointment for not being the champion unless he was the Top Scorer and choose as the best player of the tournament when he started it in the bench.

His performances attracted the attention of many teams of Europe but it was Arsenal who won the battle. So Cesc, with only 16 years old, signed his first contract with the English team leaving Barcelona without playing a single minute in the club.

In London he made interesting things urgently: he was the youngest to play a match with The Gunners main squad, the youngest to make a goal in the team (in the Carling Cup), and the youngest to play and to make a goal in the Premier League history.

Real Madrid and Barcelona always want him, but while he plays for Arsenal, he only think to have a good Euro and forget the World Cup 2006 bittersweet experience. Spain needs his technique and personality if they pretend to win an important tournament since the Euro 1964.
