Footaholic 9 years ago Arsenal, Egypt 178 2277 According to Sky Sports: The Barcelona Midfielder was Spain's outstanding performer in their 2-1 victory over Uruguay. The former Arsenal man was allowed a free role in the Spanish lineup due to the absence of the injured Xabi Alonso, and Fabregas relished the chance. "The boss asked me to play freely," Fabregas told Sky Sports News. "He knows that when I was at Arsenal that was the position I played in the best, and it worked very well today. "We played very well, we were very strong in defence and in attack. We had a very good first half." Personally, I thought he was Spain's best player in that match and I have to think that perhaps this tactical adjustment was why. What do you guys think? Should he be allowed to play like this for Spain in future and how would it work in Barcelona? DISCLAIMER: I AM POSTING THIS PURELY TO DICSUSS THE PLAYER'S BEST TACTICAL POSITION. I AM IN NO WAY INSINUATING THAT THE ARSENAL IS SOMEHOW SUPERIOR TO ANY OTHER CLUB/TEAM AND I ESPECIALLY AM NOT SUGGESTING THAT THIS MEANS CESC WILL RETURN TO ARSENAL, OR INDEED EVEN WANTS TO (AS ANYONE WHO BELIEVES HE'S COMING BACK THIS YEAR IS, FRANKLY, DELUSIONAL).
