Cesc Fabregas hasn’t covered himself in glory after playacting in Spain’s clash with Italy.
The Chelsea midfielder went up for a challenge with Graziano Pelle but ended up on the floor holding his face, despite the Italian’s arms only hitting the midfielder in the chest.
To make matters worse, Turkish official Cuneyt Cakir booked Pelle for his part in proceedings, but Fabregas slipped away scot-free.
Italy had the last laugh though, as goals from Giorgio Chiellini and Graziano Pelle dumped Spain out of the tournament.
What Fabregas just did was rivaldo-esque. This isn't meant as a compliment. Genuinely disgraceful. — Philippe Auclair (@PhilippeAuclair) 27 June 2016
