Spain Can’t Have ‘Bad Days’ At World Cup – Fernando Torres
Torres says the favourites tag doesn’t help Spain.
Liverpool striker Fernando Torres has declared that in order to win next year’s World Cup in South Africa, Spain must eliminate the ‘bad days’, such as the performance that saw them knocked out of the Confederations Cup last summer.
The former Atletico Madrid front man, also declared that being favourites isn’t necessarily a good thing and added that Spain will have to be on their guard as all opponents at the World Cup are capable of causing an upset.
“Well I don’t think that’s best for us [being favourites]. We did better at the Euros [in 2008] when we had aspirations and nothing more,” he said.
“If anything, the Confederations Cup helped us realise that at the World Cup if you have a bad day, you’re sent home faster. And it need not be against a World Cup winning team. All there rivals are capable of surprise.”
He concluded by saying that a successful season on Merseyside and arriving in South Africa good form were his hopes for the season.
“I hope things go well for Liverpool, in the Premier [League] and the Champions and I reach the World Cup in South Africa in the best possible shape.”
