SPAIN - FERNANDO TORRES - BUILDING UP TO EURO 2012

Yesterdays Spain - Liechtenstein Group Euro qualifying game has given food to the local "press dogs" to chew this morning. The bone that they are munching on is FERNANDO TORRES, taking sizable space in the Spanish Sports papers debate & opinion sections.

Apparently, Torres was very disappointed ( some say fuming ) last night for being discarded from the Spanish Football Team & Forced to watch the game from the stands. Sevilla FC forward ALVARO NEGREDO was chosen to be the Spanish forward & the man did not disappoint with two goals.

Negredo - Torres

The pressure is certainly right on for Torres, as the competition is stiff with Negredo, Fernando Llorente & locally a hand full of others like Valencia CF player Roberto Soldado all knocking on the door. Fernando Torres form with his Club CHELSEA FC isn´t exactly what was expected & the goal "dry spell", or better said, inconsistency does not give "THE KID" much arguments to defend himself & make a case.

Yesterday, Spanish National Coach Vicente Del Bosque used "common sense" & put on the player better prepared & in current form, while at the same time sending a message to Torres to get his goal scoring act together at his Club or risk falling from grace.

I personally would not read much more into this simple "call" to attention. Fernando Torres is a true professional & very talented & I am sure this situation will motivate the player to better & regain the lost form. In the end everyone will end up winning; Torres, Chelsea FC & the National Team.

No one likes being left out, everyone has pride, but along with Torres in the stands was Cazorla, Javi Martinez, Montayo & Pepe Reina. This last has motive as well to be "disappointed", but how can you say Valdes is "less"?
Time for everyone to work, there is a European Championship at the end of the season & Spain needs super competitive & inform players. There are teams out there ( Holland, Germany, Italy, Engalnd...) all "dying" to knock Spain off its high "stool".
