Cesc confident at Spain beating powerfull Italy

Arsenal star Cesc Fabregas is certain Spain are set to end a 44-year wait for international glory at Euro 2008.

Indeed, Spain came through the group stages with three straight successes to set up a quarter-final encounter against world champions Italy.

And Francesc Fabregas has a strong feeling that 2008 is set to be Spain's year after so many disappointments in the past.

"We're going to do it. We're going to win," Fabregas claims. "We have to do it however we can. If we have to play ugly, we'll do so."

Italy largely stuttered to qualification in Group C, and Fabregas is backing his team-mates to outplay Roberto Donadoni's men on Sunday vital game.
