Francesc Fabregas

Country: Spain
Club: Arsenal
Born: 04 May 1987, Vilessoc de Mar, Spain
History: Francesc "Cesc" Fabregas Soler (Catalan: Fàbregas, Spanish: Fábregas), (born May 4, 1987 in Arenys de Mar, Catalonia, Spain), Catalan/Spanish football midfielder, who currently plays for English club Arsenal. Arsenal signed him from FC Barcelona B in the middle of 2003, before Fabregas could sign a professional contract with FC Barcelona. He has been touted as one of the best of Spain's next generation of footballers. He is able to play as an attack minded midfielder, with the ability to play eye-of-the-needle passes, or in more of a withdrawn role in front of his back four, which has drawn comparisons with his compatriot, Liverpool F.C's Xabi Alonso.

Interestingly enough, Fabregas remains an avid FC Barcelona fan and is a current season ticket holder at the Nou Camp. Before joining Arsenal, Fabregas had taken part in the FIFA U-17 World Championship in 2003 and excelled; winning the Adidas Golden Shoe for top goalscorer and Golden Ball for best player. His Spanish team finished second in the tournament, runners-up to Brazil. Fabregas made his team debut in a League Cup tie at home to Rotherham United, and in doing so became Arsenal's youngest ever first-team player. Although this doesn't count for any record, he converted a penalty in a penalty shootout, which the Gunners won 9-8. He then became the youngest goal scorer in Arsenal's history in a later round of the League Cup, scoring from very close range in a 5-1 victory against Wolves. It was not until the start of the 2004-05 season that Fabregas started making first team appearances. First it was against Manchester United in the Community Shield and then four successive Premier League starts against Everton, Middlesbrough, Blackburn Rovers and Norwich City. Fabregas impressed many observers in his first four appearances, claiming a goal against Blackburn in a 3-0 victory, and went on to score Arsenal's third goal in a 5-1 Champions League victory against Rosenborg of Norway, making him the second youngest goal scorer in the history of the competition.
