Del Bosque likens Newcastle playmaker Cabaye to Xavi

Spain coach Vicente del Bosque admits he's a big fan of Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye.

Cabaye is expected to start for France tonight in their World Cup qualifier with Spain.

Del Bosque said: "Cabaye is very creative. He is probably the most talented player that France have.

"He takes the set-pieces, dictates play and manages the game for them. For the French, he is a bit like their Xavi."
