One of the most memorable Spanish goals in the entire tournament was one by Fernando Torres: a brilliant play that started as a short pass from Xavi Hernandez to David Silva which then eventually found Torres’ outstretched leg.
Torres: Honestly, it was a strategic play, that we executed almost to perfection. I saw the ball going by in front of me, stuck my leg out and I was lucky enough to hit the net. It’s a joy to score these kind of goals, because it’s the fruit of what you’ve been working on all week. It also shows that set plays are really important.
