After completing 70 minutes against Honduras, Spain striker Fernando Torres is adamant he now has what it takes to complete a full match. The Spanish international was initially a doubt to feature in the World Cup after undergoing surgery on a troublesome knee, but has done well to recover in time for La Roja’s crunch tie against Chile.

"I played 70 minutes and the good news is I feel ready to last for 90 minutes for the first time since my recovery,” Torres admitted on the Premier League’s official website. The Liverpool man also warned their opposition that David Villa and he “understand each other perfectly.”

Spain will need their dynamic strike duo to perform as best as possible when they face Chile, as only a victory will ensure their passage into the next round. Being pre-tournament favourites, it would be a disaster if they were to be knocked out in the group stages.
