Cesc Fabregas has taken to social media to reveal his delight at making his 100th appearance for Spain on Monday night.

The 28-year-old played 64 minutes as Vicente Del Bosque’s men concluded their qualification campaign for next summer’s Euro 2016 tournament with a 1-0 win over Ukraine.

The night marked the Chelsea midfielder’s 100th appearance for his national side’s senior team, and despite missing a first-half penalty, the former Arsenal captain was quick to celebrate the feat with a post-match selfie.

Fabregas posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “100 matches for the team!! 100 unforgettable moments!! I’ve lived many unrepeatable moments. Thank you all for your love and support. A big hug!”

Fabregas will now turn his attentions back to Chelsea and helping the west London club turn around their disastrous start to the season.

The Blues, who lost 3-1 to Southampton in their most recent outing, host Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.
