Del Bosque insists Chelsea striker Torres remains in Spain plans

Spain coach Vicente del Bosque says Chelsea striker Fernando Torres remains in his plans.

Spain coach Vicente del Bosque says Chelsea striker Fernando Torres remains in his plans.

Torres has suffered a spectacular loss of form since joining the Blues from Liverpool just over a year ago and Del Bosque dropped him from the squad for last week's friendly against Venezuela.

"We still have time for him (Torres) to prove that he should return to the national team," Del Bosque said.

"Fernando has been a fixture and is practically a fixture in our squads, in all the squads except the last one.

"The last squad was in no way a final decision on anyone, least of all on Fernando."
