Chelsea star Cesc Fabregas blasted Spain national team after their shock World Cup exit against Russia on Sunday.

Spain was eliminated on a penalty shootout against host nation Russia having played a 1-1 draw after the extra time.

Fabregas was left out of the Spain squad for the tournament so was working as a pundit for BBC.

And he says he cannot understand how a team with so many players from Real Madrid and Barcelona have exited the competition so early.

“I'm sad, I'm disappointed," Fabregas said.

"I think we could have done more. There's a lot of talent in this team.

“It's a great team, you look at the names, for me, you have the best defence.

“Two Real Madrid players, two Barcelona players, you have (Sergio) Busquets, the best holding midfield player in the world.

“You have (Andres) Iniesta, (David) Silva, you cannot really find better names or better players in these positions."

Fabregas won the Euro Cup and the World Cup with Spain before he joined Chelsea in 2014.
