Torres wants to continue Spain’s success

Spain celebrate at Euro 2012Spain striker Fernando Torres has hailed Spain achievements after winning Euro 2012, and is eager to continue the side’s track record of success.

An emphatic 4-0 win over Italy allowed La Roja to claim a record third consecutive tournament success, and the Chelsea man is eager to keep the run going.

“The numbers say this is the best team in history and luckily we are not finished yet,” The Sun quote El Nino as saying.

“Of course we want more. When you win you want more. If you see the age of the team, the players that maybe didn’t have many minutes at the Euros because they are younger will be important in the future.

“Most of the players are still very young and I can tell you we have so much left ahead of us. We have a lot of ambition and targets.

“We are going to enjoy this victory but our heads are already turned to the Confederations Cup and the World Cup. I hope the majority of this squad can be there.

“It has not been easy. To win three consecutive major tournaments had never happened before, so we have to appreciate the magnitude of the achievement,” he concluded.
