Cesc Fabregas reportedly had a premonition he would score the winning penalty for Spain.

“I had intuition and wanted the fifth penalty,” Fabregas said. “I told Toni Grande I thought I could repeat that great moment. They told me initially to take the second one but I said no give me the fifth as I had this premonition.”

And he made the winning goal in a 4-2 shootout with Portugal in their tense, scoreless Euro 2012 semifinal Wednesday in Donetsk. Fabregas did the same at Euro 2008 when Spain beat Italy in the quarterfinals.

For Portugal, Joao Moutinho and Bruno Alves missed their efforts for Portugal and team captain Cristiano Ronaldo was not among the first four takers.

Ronaldo said he accepted his role as the fifth penalty taker.

“It was just a question of me speaking with the coach,” Ronaldo said. “He said to me, ‘Do you want to take the fifth one?’ and I said ‘yes.’ Sometimes I take the first, the second or the third. I agreed to take the fifth.”

“I hope Spain win the tournament now because I have a lot friends there and I play there and it will be a tough final for them,” he said.
