Spain vs Poland Friendly 2010: Fernando Torres could Come back in Action

Fernando Torres is now very close to his full recovery from a knee injury ahead of Spain’s last World Cup warm-up match against Poland. Spain coach Vicente del Bosque hinted that the Liverpool striker could return to action with this game since undergoing a surgery on his knee in April.

Fernando Torres missed a lot of action with Liverpool last season and there are many who believe his injury was one of the biggest reasons behind the poor form of the All Reds. Liverpool finished the season seventh in the league table, and thus, missing a Champions League place for the next season.

Vicente del Bosque is pretty much confident that the ace striker would be available for selection for Spain’s tournament opener against Switzerland on 16 June. Spain has been drawn in Group H where they would also face Honduras and Chile.

"We knew beforehand that we would have this situation. But I have faith he (Torres) will be fine for the World Cup," Vicente del Bosque told the media.

Spain is one of the pre-tournament favorites, given the quality of players they have. However, Spain’s 1-0 victory over South Korea in the recent friendly fixture was not impressive. So, Spain would like to sort out their problems in the match against Poland.

Poland could not qualify for World Cup 2010, but they would consider the match as part of their preparation for Euro 2012 qualifying campaign starting from September this year.
