    Cesc is one of the key players, he deserves the number 10. he's an intelligent midfielder,one of the best players in the world, and he has a great ability to score (this season he has scored the same amount of goals as Iniesta, Xavi, Alonso and Silva put together). I dont really understand why del bosque hasnt make him a starter in the WC. but i heard on the tv that cesc is not in his best condition (he might still recovering from injury).

    Or maybe the coach wants to give some opportunity to some other players whose international caps are far below cesc (like busquets for example), thats okay though, everyone has a right to play. i just think that with cesc on the pitch, the game would be more lively. actually its kinda pissed me off to see a player like cesc to be benched but maybe the coach has his own strategy,lets hope he doesnt make a wrong decision. all the best for spain

    ok, Fabregas definitely deserved it. He didn't start any of the games but that's because he's behind Xavi and Iniesta, both flock the creative midfield and Del Bosque wanted Xabi Alonso to be a total midfielder, which leaves out someone to hold the midfield and that would be Sergio Busquets. Fabregas almost scored the goal that would have won the World Cup (yes, he would be at Barcelona he scored), and Fabregas also made the perfect winning assist to Iniesta, not bad for a midfield that hasn't shown his true potential yet nor has he hit his prime yet.

    It should be Villa.

    ... Because Torres is the front man and Villa plays behind him (even though Villa manages to score more goals)

  • He's recuperating from an injury and that's the main reason he's not starting and since Spain is not necessarily short in great midfielders, del Bosque prefers to bring him in slowly...
