"We will have to stop Italy's attackers and Pirlo as well," Fabregas told reporters at a press conference.
"Balotelli is a great player and he showed it yesterday. He scored two great goals against Germany in the semi-finals.
"That says it all. I really liked the way he played. He will be a threat, like Antonio Cassano or any other player."

"This is not the time to reflect on my season at Barcelona," he affirmed. "That is in the past.
"What matters is to be ready to play another final with the team on Sunday. We want to make more than history, because we have already made history."
Questioned about Andres Iniesta's role in La Roja, Fabregas said: "He had a tough season because of the injuries he suffered, but he arrived at the Euros in great form.
"There are only a few players who are as creative as he is. He is a different type of player.
"We need him to be a central piece and we trust him a lot."
