Fernando Jose Torres Sanz was born 24 years ago in Fuenlabrada. He played six seasons in the First Division of the Spanish League with Atlético Madrid. His wonderful campaign in the club of the Spanish capital gave him the possibility of arriving at the Liverpool.
In the club of The Beatles city his first season was flawless. He was protagonist in the Premier League and the Champions League. Altogether he scored 24 goals in 33 matches. This mark gave him the title of the best player of Liverpool FC of the season. Also, he finished fourth in the European Golden Shoe career, only behind Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Mallorca’s Daniel Güiza and Klaas Jan Huntelaar.
We already knew his artist dowries. We will see if in the EURO 2008 he can make something interesting with Spain, a Spain pressed by its own people, always candidate but who couldn’t pass the quarterfinals for years. With Spain, The Kid scored 15 goals in 47 matches. In this EURO we calculate that if he scores at least four times, Spain could be protagonist after 44 years. Spain needs him.
