Spain beat Armenia: Cesc and Mata scored for the European Champions


It was not easy at all for the European Champions. The talented Juanma Mata netted a 64th-minute penalty to give Del Bosque's squad a 2-1 triumph over Armenia to stay unbeaten in World Cup qualifying.

Mata, a very fast striker and one of the most interesting players in the Spanish team, slotted a left-footed shot past Roman Berezovsky after the goalkeeper had been booked for taking Mata down.

Arsenal's Cesc Fabregas gave Spain the lead in the 33rd minute after receiving a pass from Xavi Hernandez and chipping the ball over Berezovsky. But Robert Arzumanyan equalized from a header in the 58th and unleashed the enthusiasm of their fans. But Mata scored the winner goal 5 minutes later.

The powerful Spain is already in the final stage of the World Cup, and has 27 points in Group 5 after its ninth straight victory.

PD: Cesc might play for Barcelona next season.

Barcelona: "I want Cesc"

Official voices within the Camp Nou have admitted that Barcelona will make a move to sign up Cesc Fabregas. With Guardiola's team set to be without midfielders Yaya Toure and Seydou Keita when the African Cup of Nations begin in January, the institution is ready to take action and enhance their squad.

Sporting director Txiki Begiristain says that Cesc "is a player who fits the Barca profile. He was born suckling on football here and one day he will end up playing at the Camp Nou. I am sure."

Even when Arsenal FC board have not made any official statement about this transfer, it's very likely that next season we will see the first chapter of a new soap opera called "I want Cesc".

PD: Cesc doesn't care about this kind of statementes and just focuses on his game. That's why he scored in Spain's victory over Armenia.
