Liverpool boss accepts Torres injury risk

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez refuses to complain after Fernando Torres declared himself available for Spain in tomorrow's Euro2008 qualifier against Denmark, despite aggravating an ankle injury.

The Liverpool striker was restricted to just a light training session with his international team-mates earlier in the week, but he is expected to figure in Spain's crucial clash with Denmark on Saturday.

Benitez, who wants the player fit for his first Mersey derby at Everton on Saturday week, added: "It is a risk but I know he wants to play because they have such an important game for Spain."
