Fernando Torres dazzles for Liverpool

Fernando Torres’s rise through the professional soccer ranks has been nothing short of meteoric. The Spaniard followed in his grandfather’s footsteps and grew up an Atlètico Madrid fan and, after dominating his amateur leagues, joined the club at the tender age of 11. Torres did not take long to display his talent, and when he was 14 he helped Atlètico win a European under 15 tournament and was named the best player in Europe at that age level. Atlètico rewarded his performance by signing him to his first contract when he was only 15 years old. Fernando Torres

Torres, nicknamed El Niño, continued to improve and, after helping Atlètico win another tournament, was promoted to the senior team, scoring his first goal when he was only 17. Atletico progressed along with Torres and while he was there gained promotion to La Liga and earned a spot in European competition in the Intertoto Cup. Torres remained loyal to his club during this stretch and was named the team’s captain, despite many offers from larger clubs abroad. Eventually, though, Torres was lured away from Atlètico by the prospect of playing for a big club in more prestigious European competition. He was transferred to English giant Liverpool in July 2007.

While many players, especially strikers, need time to adjust to the style of play in the Premiership, Torres showed no signs of needing an adjustment period. In his first season for Liverpool, Torres notched 32 goals and led the Reds to the Champions League semifinals and fourth place in the standings. He has proved himself one of the best strikers in the world, using his speed and creativity to find the back of the net, and will surely bring joy to Liverpool fans for years to come.

Though he is only 24 years old, Torres has won nearly 50 caps for Spain. He made his international debut in 2003 and by 2004 had become a regular member of the starting 11. With three goals at the 2006 World Cup he truly established himself as a world-class talent. If Torres continues the form he has shown at Liverpool this season Spain could go far this summer.

  • LUIS RAPOSO

    THE PLAYER TO WATCH IS CRISTIANO RONALDO, AND NOT TORRES OR HUNTELAAR. LETS GET REALLY AND GIVE CREDIT WHERE IT IS DUE! LETS SEE MORE COVERAGE ON RONALDO AND PROTUGAL INSTEAD OF THE SAME OLD COUNTRIES THE MEDIA AND THE PRESS ALWAYS HYPE ABOUT.
    THANKS,
    PORTUGAL FAN

  • Theo Walcott

    To the guy above me, what the heck? You think that Ronaldo and Portugal deserve more credit? Let’s see, now Ronaldo was the MOST overrated player in the premiership this year, yes he is amazing, but he is not a great team player, the few Manchester games I watched this year really didn’t give me any reason to vote for Manchester. I felt that Ronaldo was a HUGE ball hog, taking the ball down the sides, and then just getting it stolen. Now I do like Ryan Giggs, and I think he should get the ball more often. I think if I saw more Giggs and less Ronaldo and Rooney I might tune in to more Manchester games next season.

    GO ARSENAL!!!
    P.S. Theo Walcott is going to be MUCH bigger than Ronaldo in the years to come

  • RAUL SANCHEZ

    F. TORRES IS VERY YOUNG AND HE IS GOING HAVE A GREAT FUTURE. CRISTIANO RONALDO IS IN TOP 5 BEST SOCCER PLAYER, HE MAYBE IN FIRST BECASUE HE KNOWS THE GAME REALLY GOOD, BUT LIONEL MESSI IS ALSO YOUNG AND KNOWS THE GAME ALSO. THE ONLY REASON CRISTIANO RONALDO IS BETTER THEN F. TORRES IS BECAUSE HE IS WAY OLDER.
    THANK YOU,
    SPAIN FAN
    AND BOTH OF YOU GUYS UNDER ME.
    CHELSEA IS WAY BETTER THEN ARSENAL AND MANCHESTER UNITED

    Actually…If I’m not mistaken, Ronaldo is younger then Torres.

  • Manu

    well i do believe dat torres is a grt player and he has shown it by breakin the record oy vannistelroy…..well still i would like to comment on few of the upper posts…
    RONALDO ROCKS………

  • ajg

    Ronaldo is the best in the world over the past two years. Torres is a great player as well. And to the ManU hater if you knew anything you would know Wallcott is another English player who is all hype he will never reach Ronaldos level. More importantly Ronaldo’s team mates seem to think he is a team player seeing that they voted him their player of the year.

  • chelsea

    i want to marry torres

  • Liverpool Football Club

    Ok, Ronaldo is not a complete player by any means. He can shoot and he is fast, that is it. El Nino has it all. Anyone who immediately disregards him, like the first poster is a fool and knows very little about the game.

    Fernando torres is an amazing team and idividual player ronaldo is a ball hog and I dont think he will gell with the team the way he plays

  • ndadi

    the player to watch is frank lampard and i don’t think there is anyone better than him in englend. i am happy with frank if he cld stay at chelsea.

  • ummm

    ndadi…you do realize that england didn’t even the euros. lampard will be a player that’s watching on tv, not a player to watch. torres is amazing, get him the ball and he can score.

  • rayo

  • soccer guru

    to: Theo Walcott, Raul Sanchez, dheyvid, Liverpool Football Club,and Moo #10…..
    apparently you guys/poeple know absolutely nothing bout football!!!!!
    yes, el nino is very, very good, but ronaldo is by far the best and gratest player 2 ever touch a footbal! lets recap this past season: 42 goals, a premier league title, and a champions league title! Walcott, and Messi= not a single trophy…. torres and ronaldo are going 2 have a awsome euro and one of them will win it 2, end of story.
    PS: theo walcott is the most highly over-rated player in the world!!!!! it showed this past season!.. 5-6 goals vs. 42 goals+2 titles.. u choose…

  • Go Barca!

    Ok…Ronaldo is the one to watch, right now, and is clearly cuurently the best player in the world. Walcott-maybe in a few years…Messi and Fabregas are both upcoming, but as this year proved, C Ronaldo is currently the best. And as for those who say Ronaldo was not a team player…he was voted team player of the year, and if they watched any of Man U’s games, they could see Ronaldo’s ‘ball-hogging’ runs had more than one purpose…they actually took pressure off of Man U’s defense and put it on the opposing team, creating devastating counter-attacks…one of the main reasons Man U was the team to beat in Barclays and the Champions League all year.

  • Ramon Calderon

    Raul is way better just because he actually knows how to play the game, easy and simple, El Nino is good but not better than C. Ronaldo, whom may I say is going to Real Madrid. How can you say Kaka is better than Ronaldo if his team didn’t make it to the CL next year. Luis Aragones if you are reading this, may I say sir that you are an idiot because you didn’t take Raul. The best of luck to the best team in the world, SPAIN. HALA MADIRD HALA MADIRD HALA MADIRD

  • Spainfan

    C. Ronaldo is good but i think El nino Torres plays a better a game then him i mean he scored 33 his first season with Liverpool but all i know is that C. Ronaldo and Torres are going to have a good Euro2008

  • Gilbert

    ronaldo is better player he is younger then torres ronaldo is an exciting player then torres better stepovers he makes defenders look stupid lol thats true

  • moe

    to all the people who think there as good as C.Ronaldo ur not.F.Torres is one of the best and so is C.Ron, Kaka, and la bestia Leo Messi. That one guy who thinks C.Ron is sooooo good F.Torres has deadly instinct and technique. C.Ron has talent and hard work. If C.Ron is so fast howcome he doesn’t outrun the fullbacks instead of juking them and risk getting injured. Spain is a great team, poeple like Portugal because C.Ron is porteguese everyone else can’t keep up or their just plain horrible. Messi, Kaka,C.Ron and F.Torres are the best

  • Charles Basse

    Fernanda Torres is an extremely skilled player but everyone or most of the goals he had this year weren’t that great, Ronaldo on the other hand was able to place all his shots with accuracy, Torres still has alot to learn. Ronaldo and portugal will take to to the top!

    Forca Portugal e Viva Ronaldo

  • H16

    As a die hard liverpool fan i can say nothing but good things about torres, but lets settle something, Ronaldo, is an amazing player, by far the most entertaining this year, but his effectiveness is lacking in the international department, when it come to his country he is not as an effective goal scorer as he was with Man U this year, as for Torres, i think with the talent that spain has, he will be just as effective in the Euro’s as he was in his 1st year in the premiership. Now to go as far as to say as Soccer Guru did ‘…ronaldo is by far the best and gratest player 2 ever touch a footbal!’ is absolutely ridiculous, being a great showman and goal scorer doesnt justify such a title. And then you have to think about how long Ronaldo has been in the premiership and with Man Utd, im not sure exactly but i think its somewhere in the range of 3 years, and in his first season he was just another great prospect, he scored somewhere liek 8 goals in his first season with man utd, while Torres, playing in his first year in the premiership, has broken the goal scoring record set by VanNistelroy (A Dutch Master) as well as forming an amazing partnership with Stevie G, who in my opinion is the most powerful player in the premiership at the moment, and i think next year, most likely he will top Ronaldo’s goals scored this season and possibly even take Liverpool to the champions league final and win it.
    GO SPAIN!!!

  • Jersson Castro

    Torres is a great footballer.Cristiano is too.Cristiano is in his moment right now.But if Messi wouldnt of got injured.This would be a different story.There are many great footballers out there.That make this game beautiful.And its not only ronaldo that has done all of this by himself.He has many great teammates that have helped him.Yes ronaldo works hard everyday to get better.But he is not the greatest footballer.Can he stay on top.There are many.To come,for me a real footballer that always been of top is Zidane.The master.And Theo Walcott is a work in progess.Im sure he will be great Wenger needs to give him more playin time this season.He has so much to show the world.And Arsenal can be the greatest team in the world.All of the Gunners are very young.They have so much to give.My friends, this game was meant to be beautiful,this art is made by many great footballers not just one.Every hero needs a team. JOGA BONITO. Let the world see our magic

  • matt

    ok fernanfo torres is good and deserves a lot of credit.He is young and he will be the best player in the world in a few years.saing that kaka is still the best because what he did last year in the champions league taking an old Milan team and winning it was just phenominal.

  • H16

    i have to agree with matt, kaka is still in my mind a team leader and match changer, while ac milan, will not be playing champions league football next season, they wouldnt of even made it a chase on fiorentina if kaka and the up and comer pato did not take charge, while when it comes to man utd and Ronaldo, he was not a team leader, he was just another great player on an over powering team with talent and strength, and the fact that man utd has about 8 or 9 play makers on the field at a single time made it easy for him to score as many goals as he did, with the amount of speed and skill with the ball that he has

  • Fernando Torres Fan#9

    Okay Frenando Torres Is the best player in the world not Cristiano Ronaldo Because he misses alot of goals kaka is also the same level of Fernando Torres Kaka is a overall player like Fernando and Also My Brother is Fernando Torres lol jp

  • soccerstar87

    torres is a major hottie

  • MINI TORRES9

    C. Ronaldo is 23. F. Torres is 24. Ronaldo is very good, but Fernando Torres is amazing. Yes Ronaldo brought home 2 titles and scored 42 goals but it was Fernando Torres first year in the PL you cant expect him to out score someone who has been in the PL for 5 years. The Spanish League is different then the PL and torres had to get used to new leval of play and he still scored 33 goals. Torres is better than Ronaldo.
    You’ll Never Walk Alone

  • Chris

    Torres is a fantastic player hes young and knows how to finish when needed…dont get me wrong ronaldo is a great player as well but very overrated..Im true spaniard and i believe that the entire squad has potential 2 go all the way…Torres and villa will dominate the atack for spain…and to all portugal fans you have absoulotley no attack…and if everyone will relize this..all real madrid players have made deciding factors, for the netherlands game and also for portugal…so Viva Espana Y al Real Madrid

    spain is going to win the euro cup! f.torres is a real great forward.he is nasty.he will be even better a year or two from now.cristiano is also a good player but he is mostly known for crossing out people.he is a ball hog and he just wants attention by juking and playing with the ball.in the portugese squad ronaldo and a couple of other players lead the team.spain has so many great players like TORRES, VILLA ,RAMOS,PUYOL,FABREGAS,XAVI, AND THE GREAT TALENT THE OTHERS HAVE.go torres 99999999!QUE VIVA LA FURIA ROJA!(with all do respect to those portugal fans)

  • delgado

    sorry, but even though Fernando Torres is a great player i don’t think that he can lead spain to victory. The coach made a big mistake by not picking Raul, and spain is goiing to suffer. And by the way, both FERNANDO TORRES and CRISTIANO RONALDO are amazing.

  • Anonymous

    spain will go far in the tournament if not win it because they have world class talent all over the pitch. torres and villa looked very dangerous in the attack against russia all they have to do is keep doing it but that is a big ‘if’. for me its either spain or holland winning it

  • the truth

    they are both good…i have more respect for torres because he plays the game with more teamwork and grit…ronaldo too often plays the game for the cameras and girls…and he flops on everything (it’s about time he started getting yellows for those dives too- no one likes a pansy flopper)

Lionel Messi is a great player and better than c. ronaldo! go spain, this eurocup has had great game!

    all ihve to say is ronaldo and torres both suck, and are major whiney babies…and divers. GO ARSENAL

    if you guys really want something good to watch in this tournament, don’t look at the individual player, watch holland play.

    and portugal’s backline isnt good enough for them to win it spain has a good chance watch out for germany and holland though…

    Fernando Torres is definetely one of the players to watch in the Euro. C.Ronaldo is a GREAT player as well, and there is a reason why he’s considered the best player in Europe right now… he is a great team asset, scoring all the goals that he did this past season. And for the person that said that Cristiano is older than Fernando, he’s not. He’s a year younger than him. And it’s not really fair to compare both of them. They’re completely different players with completely different styles. Both of them are worthy to be considered some of the best players in the world!

    Well first of all C.Ronaldo is good but why would the best player in tha world miss penaltys like how he missed them….and also if he was so great what did he help portugal do in the Euro???? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!!! Hes good like i said but hes a ball hog….if he would open tha game up more and pass the ball i wouldnt say a thing…..see and on the other hand F.Torres is a smart player he creates the plays how often do u see that from a forward?? Not many times…. Torres opens the game up and find ways to get open inorder for his teammates to give him the ball…..The 42 goals C R made maybe it was just his LUCKY season its was a good one!!! But Walcott, Messi and Torres are gonna over rule CR in tha upcoming year…………..

  • robbie d

    i think that C. ronaldo is good but he is also the biggest cry baby. but spain is just amazing with torres and villa

  • Efra Munoz

    Fernando Torres is going to be named footballer of the year very soon. Ronaldo is good, but Man U are outta gas he is leaving to Real Madrid. Come on who would pass up an opportunity to play for Real. As for Torres & Liverpool. All I have to say is 2008-09 Barclay Premier League Champions.

    MAN WHAT U TALKIN ABOUT C.RONALDO AND TORRES THEY SUCK THE BEST PLAYER IN THIS YEARS C.BLANCO FROM MEXICO!!! YEA!!!!

  • Anderson

    C. Ronaldo is for sure overrated. This blog is for comments on Torres not all of these other players. Give Torres props he is by far top player. He came out of no where these past 2 years. He comes out scoring goals. He gets the job done.

  • spainfan

    cristiano ronaldo is way overrated. the reason portugal is not talked about is because they did not make the finals, spain did and torres scored the winning goal. not cristiano ronaldo. no credit is due to him. ronaldo even missed his pk in champions league. torres is definitly the better strikerplayer. he is consistent and does his job well. props to fernando torres and spain on winning euro 2008!

  • Aaron

    Christiano Ronaldo is the most single overrated player. good juob for winning the chapions league because you got lucky that john terry missed a PK. F. Torres was the best in the tournament (with the help of David Villa) obviously because they won the whole thing. and F. Torres plays for Liverpool. which has the most title out of all the teams in the EPL. BBBUUUUUHHHH!!!!!

    im da best player in da world! #1

  • Derek

    Ok, the Spain and Germany game was lost by Ballack getting hurt and Lahm was caught ball watching. Dude, Torres is my favoriate player and Germany is my second best team. but if lahm saw it coming and freaking ballack didnt ssmash his head into that guy the midfield would have been tighter.

  • kiefer hummeldorf

    cristiano ronaldo sucks!!! Fernando torres and david beckham are the best!

  • mophead

    Guess what? Pato is going to be the greatest player in the world

  • jeremiah

    fernando rocks!!!!!!!!:)

  • Edgar

    there is much said about ronaldo than Torres come on ronaldo havent done anything in euro but Torres became capione

  • jeremiah

    im loh

  • DEffingoalie

    I think we all agree that Torres, Ronaldo, Henry, Rooney, Kaka, Messi and whoever else was mentioned, are all great players. Otherwise, they wouldnt have been mentioned. The tournaments over and neither Torres, Ronaldo, or Henry were that big of a factor in this. Yes, if it werent for them, the teams performance may have been altered, but they still did not do all that much. Though, Torres scored the winning and only goal in the final. But all around, in the tournament, Spain were the better team. Ronaldo is a great player but isnt much without a good team. if u put him on the worst team in a league, he mite help the team a little, but he wont do much. And the same with Henry. Each great player has had great team and teamates

  • TSoc61

    Well said DEffingoalie!!Having said that,can anyone figure out why the France/Italy rematch of 2006 was the WORST game I saw all tournament?!?!(Henry deflecting ball in wall,Luca Toni a step SLOWER than my grandmother etc.)I’m still scratching my head about that one!Keep Kicking All!!

  • Jeremiah

    Fernando torres in my doubt will be asked to play with barcalona.But!!!he will more then likly stay with liverpool witch rocks and will hopefuly get liverpool a cup.So lets stay in our bloody undergarmans and watch the beautiful game

  • Allen

    Torres is wonderfull to watch only if Liverpool could bring better player to play with him along with Gerard but all we see that Liverpool is signing names of players that we’ve never heard of players from Norway Switzerland and to to all those who are making showoff player (C.Ronaldo) so great i can tell you only one thing put a fast defender on him and he’s gone, now don’t get me wrong he’s a good player but he’s been lucky that he’s playing in a great club and he’s lucky that his coach likes him and you people along with the media are giving him more than he deserve just like what ahppened with Beckham same story only this one is worst cause he’s been called now the greatest player and etc…………….., and this guy who said he was gonna make a new glory for him in euro 2008 the only glory he made for him was scoring that goal on thier 2nd match and been responsable for Germany’s second goal , sure what a glory……, it’s sad that there are idiots like Calderon out there paying so much for him to join Real Madrid and this looks like a start of another 4 dry years in Madrid just like old Florention Perez time and we all remember how that went as soon as Beckham arrived, and againa don’t get me wrong he’s a good player but not a class can’t compare him with the likes of Figo,Zidane,the real Ronaldo and many otheres and i’m not even mentioning the 2 foot ball legends from Brasil & Argentina

  • Spain fan

    F.Torres is the best.C.Ronaldo is good, but then why didn’t his team win?
    GO ESPANA!!!

  • Jeremiah

    allen is right about the medias atention with C.ronaldo i mean he is a good player but in the same case lets take ronaldinho he’s better than C.ronaldo and he doesn’t get that much atention so really C.ronaldo is lucky to be playing with Man-u and his home nation because if he does something bad like beckham in 1998 then oh boy hes in for a surprise.To all u dumb guy who dont know the legends of brasil and argentina they are Pele and D.Maradona

  • TSoc61

    Good points about C.Ronaldo and Torres.Both great NOW,but the REAL question is will we be talking about them in 5 or 10 years?!?!?That’s the REAL question with some of these young players.Are they durable enough to play 10 or so years?Only time will tell!!Also,Lehmann was out of position on the goal.Sorry Torres lovers!!

  • That Guy

    It doesn’t matter if Lehmann was out of position. If he is such a great goalkeeper then he should’ve been in the right position, but hey that’s just me thinking that good goalkeepers should be in the CORRECT position. O well i guess the last guy just needs to make an excuse so he feels better inside. Whatever floats your boat…..VIVA LA ESPANA!!!! VIVA F.TORRES!!!!!

  • me

    ROONEY

  • Jeremiah
