Fernando Torres's starting place in the World Cup final is in doubt. Torres was dropped to the subsitutes bench for Spain's semi-final win over Germany and Vicente del Bosque has admitted he may not recall the Liverpool striker for tomorrow's final against Holland. "I don't know if he will be in the line-up," said the Spain boss. "It was a difficult choice. Torres has been helping us all along. His work is important even if it is not noticed. He is good at occupying the centre-backs. "I didn't talk to him before I announced the line-up against Germany, but he is a very important part of the team. He is one of the key members of the squad and a lovely guy."
