But there are simple reasons for this: David Villa’s loss to injury and the loss of form that leaves the Spain manager thinking Torres is better coming off the bench.
Fabregas was terrific as it turns out, as were the two real architects of this victory: Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta. The two finest players ever to have come out of Spain, they produced three mind- blowingly good passes to create the opportunities for Silva, Alba and Torres, with a delivery every bit as brilliant coming from Sergio Busquets for the fourth.
