Football: Sensational Spain reach the Final of the European Cup

Cesc Fabregas proved to be a world class player. He scored a hat-trick of set-ups to send Spain leaping into the final three goals ahead of a beleaguered Russian team.

The Spaniard team gave a amazing lecture of football. Their performance was so impressive that the Russian team was reduced to a simple worthless team in 90 minutes. And Aragones' side is now the favorite one to win the European Title.

Coming on as a substitute, Fabregas initiated a skilful one-two pass with Xavi Hernandez after 50 minutes and then repeated the trick with Daniel Guiza and David Silva at 73 and 82 minutes respectively.

The Spaniards, however, didn't occupy any advantage on ball possession until 19 minutes into the second half and a tight defence from both teams meant a well-fought but goalless first half.

Germany received their place in the final after a 3-2 victory over surprise semi-finalists Turkey.

This Sunday, the two nations will face to earn the crown, in a match the many people will never forget.
