And there it is -- Spain have introduced a true striker. Or, at least, Fernando Torres. Cesc Fabregas, who scored the equaliser against Italy just minutes before, has made way in favor of the Chelsea forward. But will this be the Nando we've seen in the last few matches for the Blues, or will he be the joke everyone likes to make?
Well, he's already made his presence felt, speeding toward goal and rattling Gigi Buffon. The Italian goalkeeper went out to meet him, tackling Torres to prevent any further damage. Oh, Torres, that just answers our questions. "Torresy" is going to become a new adjective in the wider lexicon.
El nino has roughly fifteen more minutes to make an impact. But the Italians, who likely didn't even expect a point from this match, aren't going to make it easy on him.
