Spain player Fernando Torres
“Physically I feel very good and fresh because I haven’t had the drain of so many games as my team-mates.”
“I’m hopeful of showing my best to the team. It’s true I would have liked to have played more with Chelsea to be in better playing shape.”
“All players have dreams, but sometimes they are met in a way that we do not expect. I wish I had more presence in the national team.
“My injury at the World Cup stopped me from doing better, but the important thing is that eventually everything will go well. I will keep going until the end and hope we are European champions again.”
