CescFabregas says he is “desperate” to play in the World Cup final against the Netherlands despite only making three appearances for Spain in South Africa.

“I’m desperate to play,”Fabregas told the Sun. “I can’t deny it has hurt not to be in the starting line-ups.

“But I only have to look at our incredible players -and especially our midfielders -to realise I’m so honoured to be part of this magnificent Spanish side.”

The 23-year-old, who has 53 caps and six international goals to his name, is confident he could play a role in the most important match in Spain’s history and says he will “give everything” should he be called upon.

“Of course I believe I can play a part in making history for our country, which has never won a World Cup before,” he continued.

“If I’m lucky enough to get a start I will give everything I have.”

“If I’m not in the team, I will know deep down that Spain winning the World Cup is more important than Cesc Fabregas starting the game or not.

“So I will still be 100 per cent behind the boys who do go out there. And I will be thinking about what I will do, what I must do if I come on.”
