He might be our No. 9, but yesterday Fernando Torres truly was Spain's No.9.
Dressed to impress in those fashionable Red kit's, Torres again proved why he's one of the best (if not the best) striker on the planet right now with one of the most amazing goals I've seen in a long time. I'm pretty sure everyone has seen the goal, but I thought I'd link to it for those that need another look.
Torres' ability to fight off the defender (who was attached to his hip) -- and the keeper who was charging hard -- and still manage to chip the ball into the bottom left corner of the net was nothing short of pure magic.
Spain looked the more deserved team for almost the entire match, and for Torres to be a part of the squad that ended the 44-year drought makes it that much sweeter. With the season less than two weeks out, I think I speak for everyone when I say that I can't wait to see Nando back in OUR Red kit soon!
¡Las felicitaciones, Fernando!
