Torres aims to move up Spanish scoring list
Friday 01 June 2012
Fernando Torres has targeted more goals at Euro 2012 after scoring the opener in Spain's 4-1 friendly win over South Korea on Wednesday.
The Chelsea striker won praise from his coach, Vicente del Bosque, for his display as he moved to fourth on Spain's all-time list of top-scorers with 28 goals. And he set his sights on going up to third during the tournament in Poland and Ukraine with Fernando Hierro just one goal better off.
"I hope we can celebrate in the final and that when we have finished the championship only Raul and El Guaje [David Villa] will be ahead in the list of scorers," Torres said.
