Fernando Torres is delighted to have scored the goal that rubber-stamped Chelsea's place in the Champions League final - although the substitute admits he never envisaged such an opportunity would crop up.
The Blues somehow overcame John Terry's first-half sending off at the Nou Camp on Tuesday night to progress to the Munich finale at the expense of Barcelona. Chelsea were penned back for the most part as they looked to achieve progression from the semi-finals and saw it secured when Torres came off the bench to wrap up victory late on.
"I was not expecting to have any chances," he said. "I was playing almost as a left-back. The only chance we could have was on the counter-attack like this."
