Ferran Torres has scored eight goals for club and country this season
Manchester winger Ferran Torres made the first hat-trick of his career when Spain defeated Germany, the strongest in the league, and reached the finals of the Four Nations Cup with France.
In the rehearsal for the UEFA EURO 2008 finals, former Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata scored the first goal for Spain and Torres fled with perseverance to his homeland.
Rodrie scored three goals with a header and Torres opened the fourth before scoring the fifth.
Mikel Oyarzabal listened to him 6-0.
France and Spain are joined by Belgium or Denmark in group A2 and Italy, the Netherlands or Poland in group A1.
Torres’ Summer chord Seems
Torres had previously scored only one goal for Spain.
It was a game where Spain dominated with a 70 percent offside score and 23 shots, but it was 20-year-old Torres who stole the show.
His speed, intelligence and sense of focus impressed in the first weeks of the season, and his performance here reinforces the suspicion that Manchester City could have closed the deal by only paying the first £20m for his services.
His rough pace and cunning allowed Morath to score a bad, forbidden goal before showing the half-time he needed to give himself and the volleyball their first home game.
His second showed again an excellent technique, controlling the flank behind him for the lunge under Manuel Neuer.
He saved the best for the last one by nicely coming home from the edge of the field to bring his international score to four goals.
His performance will delight fans of Manchester’s blue half, with the man he replaced in town, Leroy Sanah, totally ineffective for the Germans.
The only setbacks on this fantastic evening for Spain were the muscle injuries of Captain Sergio Ramos and Sergio Canales. But manager Luis Enrique said the two injuries weren’t important and added that it was uncomfortable for the clubs.
Weak has good work to do
has only won three of his eight games in 2020 – 14 and 17 missed.
After entering the game, Germany was invincible in 2020 and controlled the A4 group.
They had to avoid defeat to reach the final and although this situation can sometimes lead to some confusion in the game, they were under par throughout the game.
They couldn’t register a single shot on goal and Serge Gnabri came closest when his 22-metre effort fell off the bar in quiet moments.
The night was marked by questionable tactical decisions, with Chelsea hitter Timo Werner playing far to the left and Gnabri coming out of the cross uninspired in the first half.
Manager Joachim Lowe had the opportunity to transform the team after graduating from the 2018 World Cup in the group stage, but as his team is 13th in the world, this achievement shows that he still has a lot of work to do for next year’s transformed European Championship.
Lowe said he didn’t know what really happened, but he still trusted the players.
He went on to say: Today we have seen that we have not made as much progress in our development as we thought and hoped after the last races.
