Liverpool have confirmed that striker Fernando Torres has suffered a hamstring tear and is set be sidelined for 10 days.

The 23-year-old limped out of Spain´s 1-0 win over France on Wednesday in the 23rd minute and a subsequent scan revealed the extent of the damage.

A statement from club spokesman Ian Cotton on the club´s official website, www.liverpoolfc.tv, said: "Fernando was examined by medical staff when he returned to Melwood. A scan later confirmed their diagnosis that he suffered a hamstring tear in his right leg. Fernando is expected to be out for approximately 10 days."
