Roy praises Torres

Roy Hodgson was full of praise for Fernando Torres after the game yesterday. Although Torres didn't score himself, missing a good chance in the first half, he refused to hide and eventually set up the winner for Maxi Rodriguez. "Quality is permanent and he's getting there," Hodgson told reporters after the game. "It will come for Fernando. He has been very good in training and he works very hard at his game in training. "He is very much on board with what we are trying to do and asking him to do. "It is sometimes small margins. With the chance he had in the first half if he takes the ball around the 'keeper and scores then it's a different story. "Because he didn't score he can see the headlines on Monday about Torres misses again, but there's nothing we can do about that. "All we can do is encourage him to keep working like he is and to let him know we think he is a magnificent player, and over the course of the next 30 or so games he will do a good job for us, without a shadow of a doubt.
