Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas has said that he plans to be 100% fit by the time the Euro 2012 kicks off in Poland and Ukraine the summer. Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas suffered an injury in recent weeks, which was likely to rule him out of the Euro 2012. However, he has made a miraculous recovery in such a way that he has now been included in the squad for the European Championships. Spain will be going into the competition looking to defend the title they won in 2008. Fabregas, who moved from Arsenal in £ 35 million deal in the summer, has been short of form in recent weeks.
He suffered a thigh injury in the Copa del Rey match against Athletic Bilbao. Barcelona won the match 3-0, in what proved was the last match for outgoing manager Guardiola. The thigh injury meant that his participation at the Euro 2012 has been under major doubt in the last few days. However, Spanish national team manager Vicente del Bosque has not omitted him from the team especially considering that fellow teammate Xavi has been struggling from a knee problem throughout the season. It is expected that Fabregas and Iniesta will be used a lot by del Bosque.
“Thank u all for caring abt (sic) my injury. Im (sic) fine and with no pain. Soon will be 100 [percent] ready to start preparing the euros with the national team,” said Fabregas on his Twitter account. Spain have been grouped alongside 2006 World Champions Italy, while they also have Croatia and Republic of Ireland to negotiate. Due to the fact that they will be playing Italy in the first game of the group stages, they will be hoping to have Fabregas to be fully fit by the time the match kicks off.
