Liverpool ace Torres admits Spain struggles

Liverpool striker Fernando Torres admits he hasn't had the best of World Cups.

But he still believes he has made a worthwhile contribution in tandem with five-goal David Villa and is improving game by game.

He said: "It is a difficult tournament for me because my fitness is not the best but I am improving every game.

"I am happy for the things I did in the game against Paraguay in the quarter-finals and in the last game as well.

"I am feeling better but I still have to improve - obviously.

"I have to accept my role in this tournament. I didn't arrive in the best moment especially in terms of fitness especially after two lots of surgery.

"But I am happy with the things I am doing and hopefully the manager and the team as well."
