Barcelona ace Cesc angry with pitch after Spain draw

Barcelona ace Cesc Fabregas hit out at the state of the pitch for Spain's 1-1 draw with Italy last night.

Cesc struck the equaliser in Spain's Euros opener.

He said: "I don't want to complain, but we deserve much more. It is lamentable that we have to play on a pitch like this.

"It has been a difficult match, the most difficult one we have in the group against a very strong rival.

"After going behind it is not a bad result. We are still dependent on ourselves. We have shown character and played well."

Spain coach Vicente del Bosque said of Cesc: "We wanted to have superiority in the midfield so that we could have possession and arrive higher up the pitch. David Silva, Cesc and Andres Iniesta arrived very well from the second line of attack and I think they did very well in a lot of moments.Fernando Torres came on the match was much more open. We had more chances to score, but so did they and we can't forget that. Time will tell whether this is a good point or not."
