Fabregas Gets Number 10

Luis Aragones have "awarded" Cesc Fabregas with the shirt number 10 for Euro 2008 representing Spain.
His form at Arsenal last season has delighted many, and this performance definitely caught his Spanish manager's eye. He thus give the jersey number 10 to Fabregas, which the number is normally given to the team's creative spark, meaning Fabregas is in the eyes of Aragones the most creative player in the Spanish side. Another change that has been made to Fabregas shirt is that instead of showing the name "Cesc", it now shows the name "Fabregas", just like his Arsenal one. Cesc have claimed that he wanted to get number 4 just like in the Arsenal squad, but it got taken by Marchena, and he decided to change in the first place is because his old number 18 also got taken. Now let's see the all-new Cesc Fabregas Spanish shirt:

Yes, it's obvious that it was edited. This was the best I could do, but it won't be long before we could see the "official" one. All I have to say is that, Fabregas deserves this, and no doubt about it, Fabregas has now matured into a world-class playmaker. I will bet on him performing outstandingly in the Euro 2008 tournament, and maybe, just maybe, Spain can win it.
Another player who has changed number in the Spanish national team is David Villa. He gets Raul's old number, 7. I can somehow sense that Raul and Villa have some similarities, and it will be exciting to see how Villa performs under the legendary Raul's number, although I feel that Raul really deserved a call-up.
While Spain has already appointed their number 10, Italy is stll finding a suitable candidate. There are many candidates, but Andrea Pirlo, Daniele De Rossi, Antonio Cassano, and Del Piero are all prime candidates. Legendary Italian players such as Roberto Baggio, Gianni Rivera, Omar Sivori, and even Francesco Totti have don on that number 10 jersey.
From what I think, De Rossi will get that number. Trust me, I just have a strange feeling ;)
