London: Spain midfielder Cesc Fabregas says that that the England team that beat his team in Saturday’s friendly lacks “talent to make things happen”.
Spain were defeated 0-1 in the match at London’s Wembley Stadium.
“We saw two very different styles of teams. One defensive and one trying to play football and trying to score goals. In the end the one trying to score goals didn’t and the one not trying did. So, it was a very weird game,” a leading daily quoted Fabregas, as saying.
“It’s difficult to say who played well for England. They were defending basically the whole game. Normally England don’t play like that when Wayne Rooney and Jack Wilshere are available, but unfortunately they were without a few players and maybe it was an obligation to play like that.”
“Overall, England are a very solid team and if they have Jack back it will make a massive difference to this team. He is the one with the talent to make things happen,” he added.
The 24-year-old further said that the world and European champions always want to win, but will prefer to losing odd friendlies than in an important game.
“We lost friendly games to Argentina, Portugal and Italy and we still won the World Cup,” Fabregas said.
