Torres delighted with four-goal blitz

Striker Fernando Torres said Spain needed to perform at their very best in Sunday’s Euro 2012 final to retain their crown.

Vicente Del Bosque’s team strolled to a record-breaking 4-0 win over Italy in Kiev to claim their third consecutive major trophy, something no other national side have achieved before.

Spain had been heavily criticised before the final for their conservative style of play, but Torres believes that his side proved their detractors wrong in the end.

“I think we did what we had to do and saved the best for last,” the Chelsea striker told Goal.com after the game.

“That was what we needed to be champions again.

“It’s a great joy, almost impossible to describe. You can only remember how it feels to win when you lift a trophy again.

“I am very happy that we could make Spain proud of us, that is the most important thing, to see the fans celebrating with us and enjoying our game.

“It is something I will never forget.”

Torres, 28, came off the bench to score and set up Spain’s final two goals, and in the process, finish tied as the tournament’s top scorer with three.
