Anfield hero ready to return from lay off with a World Cup bang?
There were some who unwisely baulked when Rafa Benitez stumped up £26.5m on Fernando Torres three year ago but of all the complaints one could lay at the Anfield manager’s door that particular deal is not one of them. Even with prolonged spells out with injuries the Atletico Madrid man has been phenomenal for Liverpool scoring 72 goals in 103 starts whilst becoming a Kop idol.
Luckily for Vicente del Bosque Torres is pretty damned effective for his country. Forming a mouthwatering partnership with new Barcelona signing David Villa. The 26 year old has of course been out of action for some time but the Spanish nation will be hoping that El Nino will be fighting fit when they take on Switzerland on the 16th of June.
