Spain coach Luis Aragones has hinted that Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas will start during his side's Euro 2008 final against Germany on Sunday night in Vienna.

In comments broadcast on private television Cuatro, he said his starting line-up for the match would be the same as the squad that beat Russia 3-0 in the semi-finals on Thursday when Fabregas replaced an injured David Villa.

Asked if Spain were the favourites against Germany, Aragones said: “I think so, Spain is better than Germany.”

It will be Fabregas' first start of the tournament. Aragones has up until now used 21-year-old as a second-half subsititute.

Fabregas scored the winning penalty in Spain's quarter-final 4-2 shootout victory over world champions Italy and he set up two of Spain's goals in its win over Russia.

Spain last lifted the European Cup in 1964 with final victory over the former USSR in what was their only triumph at a major tournament to date. The country last reached the Euro final in 1984 when it lost to France.
