Chelsea's Fernando Torres Named to Spain v Scotland Squad

Fernando Torres Named to Spain Squad

Fernando Torres has been told by Spain National Team coach Vicente del Bosque that he will lose his place unless he starts scoring regularly for Chelsea FC.

Torres was not on the squad for last month's 6-0 thrashing of Liechtenstein, which won Spain's Euro 2012 slot.

Del Bosque said, "We still have faith in him but have others behind him pushing hard for a place. We have to try and be fair. Some think we are not."

Torres' Chelsea place is threatened by Didier Drogba, Nicolas Anelka and Romelu Lukaku.

"My brother was a keeper and I used to enjoy playing with him in the street. One day the ball knocked my front teeth out and my mum wouldn't let me play in goal anymore," Torres states  in the November 2011 issue of FourFourTwo , out now.

"I still enjoy going between the sticks in training and when we're allowed to choose our own positions that's often where I head. I like people shooting at me and trying to stop as many as I can."
