Torres set to continue for Spain

02 July 2010 10:10

Spain coach Vicente del Bosque is expected to persist with Fernando Torres for Saturday's quarter-final against Paraguay.

The Liverpool striker has failed to hit the target at the World Cup, while Fernando Llorente looked more of a goal threat following his introduction against Portugal. However, Del Bosque has backed Torres and is ready to start him in Johannesburg.

He said: "Our striker right now is Fernando. He's played four games, a lot of minutes and will play more. We've got full confidence in him, while we also know that Fernando Llorente brings a lot of qualities too. Both need to be full of confidence, both need to know they can be helpful."
