World Cup 2010 Final, Spain Vs. Netherlands: Cesc Fabregas Replaces Xabi Alonso

Vincente del Bosque, in the 87th minute, used his second substitution, bringing in Cesc Fabregas for Xabi Alonso.

The move is an attacking one, with Alonso, who normally sits deep in the Spanish formation, brought-off for somebody who more commonly plays higher in attack.

The match is still scoreless in the 89th minute.  If it remains drawn after second half stoppage time, a 30 minute extra period will be played.
