Chelsea striker Torres: I deserve my Spain spot

Chelsea ace Fernando Torres insists he deserves his place in Spain's Euros squad.

Torres defended his selection for the Spain team who will go to Poland and Ukraine as defending champions and favourites.

Given David Villa was unable to recover from injury in time for consideration, it would have been a shock if Torres had not been called up.

He said: "I can't stop the debate. I think all of us are here on merit.

"I come with the FA Cup and the Champions League. I think the end of the season was not bad."
