A dive & open goal miss: Fernando Torres’ brief & forgettable individual highlights from Spain 1 – Holland 5 [Video]
Benched in favour of Diego Costa last night, Fernando Torres was given the thankless task of coming on after 62 minutes, with Holland 3-1 up and the game virtually over.
That said, Torres did still have just under a half an hour to make an impact, and he did see a fair amount of the ball in the closing stages.
Alas, his use of it wasn’t the most optimal.
Torres took a dive in the box, jumping over Vlaar’s extended leg, and then incurred the wrath of Nigel De Jong for his poor attempt at winning a penalty.
But worse was to come for Spain’s former golden boy: with the goal at his mercy after a perfect square ball, Torres instead chose to take a touch, and the chance was wasted.
Another one bites the dust.
