Spain head coach Vicente del Bosque said he was content with the form of Liverpool striker Fernando Torres in their 1-0 Round of 16 win over Portugal.

A 63rd-minute David Villa goal provided the victory for the Spaniards who will now meet Paraguay in their quarter final and del Bosque was at ease with how his side was playing and said Torres’ was where he needed to be following a knee injury.

“We looked comfortable out there today. We played well and we were vigilant in defence and when we were on the ball we created a lot of good chances. When we're in that form it's difficult to stop us. The players who came on did a good job for us,” he said.

“Fernando Torres did what he had to do and we all felt pretty comfortable with how we played. This is a team that wants to make history and we'll just have to wait and see if luck's on our side. At least we're through to the last eight now.”
