Report: Fabregas a doubt for semifinal

The Associated Press is reporting that Spain midfielder Cesc Fabregas injured his right leg in training and is doubtful for Wednesday's semifinal against Germany.

Fabregas, who has been one of Vicente del Bosque's first substitutes off the bench, figured to have a larger role in the semifinal given the uncertainty of Fernando Torres' status.

Should Fabregas not be available and Torres not start, Fernando Llorente would be the odds-on favorite to crack the starting XI alongside David Villa.

What do you make of this development? Do you think Spain can defeat Germany without Fabregas and an effective Torres?
