Atletico’s Fernando Torres matches a scoring milestone last achieved at Liverpool [Video & Tweets]

Fernando Torres is red hot at the moment.

El Nino’s hasn’t been in this good form since his old days at Liverpool.

And that’s not simply empty words either. Torres opened the scoring for Atletico Madrid away at Levante on Sunday in La Liga, as he moved up to 10 goals for the season in the Spanish top flight.

Torres hadn’t scored 10 goals in a league season since his Liverpool days.

The forward’s confidence was in full view at Levante as he scored with a terrific first time shot after timing his run to perfection to breach the home backline.

Fernando Torres has now scored 6 goals in his last 10 games across all competitions.

Could he be forcing his way into the Spanish reckoning for the European Championships?

La Roja don’t have too many striking options, and it’s not beyond the realms of possibility that El Nino gets a place in Vicente Del Bosque’s side.
