European champions Spain romped to a rollercoaster 4-0 win over Luxembourg on Friday night courtesy of goals from Paco Alcacer and Santi Cazorla to seal their place in next year’s continental showpiece.
However, one man made the headlines on Saturday morning after that game in Logroño and it’s none other than Chelsea’s bearded midfielder Cesc Fabregas whom by recorded, has provided 30 assists for the Spain national team since 2006.
That puts the 28-year-old, who was on hand to provide Alcacer with a slide-rule pass to double the hosts’ lead, on top of the assist list in La Roja’s national team history.
Fabregas, who will make his 99th cap for Spain on Monday against Ukraine if selected, was proud of his achievement and took to the social media to thank his fans.
He wrote on Facebook:”I feel extremely proud to have become the player with most assists of the Spanish National Team! Game 99…. Keep it up!!!!!!”
