Torres fit and ready for Spain

Liverpool's Spain striker Fernando Torres believes he is approaching the World Cup in fresh condition following a recent injury lay-off.

Torres missed the closing two months of the domestic season following knee surgery.

The 26-year-old made his first competitive appearance since April 8 as a second-half substitute during Spain's 6-0 rout of Poland in Murcia on Tuesday evening.

Torres was a 66th minute replacement for David Villa and found the net late on before confirming at full-time that he feels fit and ready to make an impact in South Africa.

"I am very happy because now it is nearly two months after the surgery and I haven't noticed any problems," he declared.

"This was a very important day to me because to play in the World Cup is most important.

"The minutes I played were useful to gain rhythm and to confirm that my knee is good.

"It was perfect and to get a goal as well, I'm very happy."
