Torres celebrates Euro inclusion with goal

May 31, 2012, Thursday/ 16:45:00

Striker Fernando Torres, who scraped into Spain’s Euro 2012 squad by the skin of his teeth, celebrated by ending a year-long goal drought for his country in a 4-1 friendly win over South Korea.

Torres, complimented by coach Vicente del Bosque afterwards, gave Spain an 11th minute lead although South Korea then gave the Spaniards a fright when Kim Do-Heong rifled an equalizer a minute before halftime. A Xabi Alonso penalty and a Santi Cazorla free kick in a four-minute spell early in the second half put Spain back in control and Alvaro Negredo, who like Torres just made the cut, added a fourth.
