Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has struggled to recapture his first half of the season form and his troubles followed him back home when he struggled to make his mark in Spain's friendly loss to Holland at the Amsterdam ArenA, their second defeat to the Dutch in less than a year.
Following the match, tensions were high as the players struggled to explain how the loss of a couple players has made such a difference that La Roja are now a far departure from their championship winning side.
Some players were taking it harder than others and when Cesc Fabregas was asked by Cuatro's Diego Miguel Fernández why fans should believe in the team following that performance, the former Arsenal captain took offence.
Fernandez: Are there reasons to believe in this team after what he just saw on the pitch just now?
Cesc: Ahh...I don't know...you tell me...by you asking I guess you'd say no. I have to say yes. Alright.
Cesc then walked off screen but yelled back at Fernandez; "What a question. You've got a lot of nerve."
It's clear that Fabregas, who has struggled in 2015, took the question to heart while Fernandez could've worded the question differently.
But what is also clear is that the Spaniards are frustrated by their recent lack of success and are keen to get the newcomers adapted as soon as possible before next summer's Euro 2016 tournament in France, where Spain will try to win their third-straight competition.
