Video: Fernando Torres’ lovely first goal against Blackburn

The perfect European hangover cure

It took Fernando Torres just four minutes to find the net against Blackburn, and he did it with real class. Jamie Carragher probably didn’t intend his long ball to end up looking this sexy, but the Spaniard’s chest control and half-volley from the edge of the box soon polished it up nicely.

    That one was just fantastic. The technique to trap the ball and then being able to put that type of power on the ball with your momentum going the other direction. Phenomenal.
