Fernando Torres's hamstring injury isn't as bad as first feared. Torres pulled up in the last minute of extra time in Sunday's World Cup final with a hamstring injury. There were fears the Liverpool striker was facing another long lay-off but it now appears the injury isn't as serious as first thought. "We've been in touch with the Spanish medical team and they don't think it's too serious. It's an adductor muscle injury but they've not had a chance to assess it today," said Dr Peter Brukner, the Reds' new Head of Medicine and Sports Science. "Fernando will have a proper assessment and probably a scan tomorrow and some of the Liverpool medical staff will go to Madrid later in the week to fully assess the injury and organise his rehab. At this stage we don't think it's too serious. "We can't say too much more at the moment until it is properly assessed."
