Liverpool Star Fernando Torres Withdraws Early From Spain Training Session
The national team’s medical staff have said that the injury is not serious and the decision for his early departure from the session was purely precautionary, according to Spanish publication AS.
Coach Vicente del Bosque is already without the services of Torres’ strike partner David Villa, who withdrew from the squad after suffering a hamstring injury in Valencia’s 1-0 win over Racing Santander at the weekend.
Fenerbahce striker Daniel Guiza is also a doubt for the game with fluid in his knee so Del Bosque will hope to have Torres fit for selection as La Furia Roja aim to end European Qualifying Group Five with a 100 per cent record.
Spain have already qualified for next summer’s World Cup in South Africa as group leaders and face trips away to Armenia and second-placed Bosnia in their remaining fixtures.
Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez will be keen to have his prized asset return safely to Merseyside after international duty. Torres has been in electrifying form for the Reds so far this season, scoring eight goals in just seven Premier League games.
