Fabregas assessed ahead of Italy

Cesc Fabregas has picked up a slight injury, and will assessed by the Spanish national team’s medical department on Tuesday.

Marca report that the midfielder picked up a slight knock in Barcelona’s win over Almeria on Sunday.

As such, having met with the La Roja for the friendly with Italy on Wednesday, the 25-year-old will undergo tests from the doctors tomorrow.

The paper claims that the former Arsenal man should be fit to play some part at Vicente Calderon, but may not start the match.
