Torres not out for personal glory

Published Add your comment

Fernando Torres insists he will happily sit on the bench if it means Spain win Euro 2012.

The Chelsea striker dumped the Republic of Ireland out of the competition on Thursday as he plundered a double in a 4-0 rout in Gdansk after being recalled to the starting line-up.

Torres was used only as a substitute in Sunday's night's opening 1-1 Group C draw with Italy, but he said: "It was not a disappointment. I know all my team-mates we have here, we are all playing in the best team in the world - at least we won the World Cup and the Euros. Anyone can play, so it's not a disappointment to be on the bench with the kind of players in the team."
