Cesc Fabregas is not going to let jibes about 'boring' Spain spoil the best day of his life.
The former Arsenal captain was a central figure in Kiev as Spain overwhelmed Italy 4-0 in the Euro 2012 final to become the first side to win three successive tournaments. Yet the achievement has come amid claims Spain's unique tiki-taka approach has become more concerned with stopping the opposition having possession.
Speaking to Radio Five Live, Fabregas said: "Those people who think we are playing boring, in my opinion they don't understand the game. This has been one of the best days of my life. Three major trophies in a row has never been done before in the history of football. I don't think we're ready to see what we have done yet."
