Euro 2012 - Torres misfires as gutsy Italy hold Spain

Fernando Torres was guilty of spurning two golden chances as Italy unearthed a performance of real character to hold Spain to a 1-1 draw in their Euro 2012 opener at the PGE Arena in Gdansk.
World and European champions Spain went into the Group C opener as warm favourites, but were met by an Italian side who were every bit as dangerous going forward as their feted opponents in front of 43,615 good-natured fans in the Polish city.




Italy went ahead on 60 minutes after a tight first period, Udinese forward Antonio Di Natale bounding on to an exquisite pass from Andrea Pirlo to lift the ball over goalkeeper Iker Casillas. Italy fans were still celebrating when Spain equalised courtesy of Cesc Fabregas four minutes later.The Barcelona midfielder evaded the attentions of Emanuele Giaccherini to slip the ball beyond Gianluigi Buffon in levelling at 1-1 from David Silva's pass, but there remained plenty of time for Chelsea forward Torres to win it for Spain.

In keeping with the way it has been for him since he left Liverpool for Chelsea 18 months ago, Torres failed miserably.
The £50 million striker did little to suggest he is back to anything close to the form that saw him rise to prominence during his days at Atletico Madrid and Liverpool after replacing Fabregas, as he failed to take the ball beyond Buffon on 74 minutes with the Italian keeper racing from his line to make the sort of tackle a central defender would have been proud of.
Torres scored the winning goal from a similar situation when Spain beat Germany in the Euro 2008 final, but this is a figure clearly short of confidence four years on as hesitancy and lack of purpose infiltrates his movements.
He hoisted the ball over the bar with only Buffon to beat on 85 minutes when he could have played in fellow substitute Jesus Navas, opting to go for goal only to knock his effort well off target. To encapsulate a fairly miserable 19-minute cameo, Torres was also lucky to only be booked for elbowing Daniele De Rossi in the throat as he jumped for a high ball. Another referee may well have sent off Torres.
It justified Spain manager Vicente del Bosque's decision to start the match without any recognised forwards as Torres, Alvaro Negredo and Fernando Llorente were all left on the bench.

The latter two forwards may expect to see some action against Republic of Ireland in Gdansk on Thursday, when Spain continue their quest to defend the title they won four years ago in Austria and Switzerland. Spain's best chance in the first period saw Andres Iniesta lift a shot over the bar from Xavi's pass while Casillas was forced to repel Thiago Motta's header second before half-time. Torres was not the only Premier League forward found wanting in the moment as Manchester City's Mario Balotelli squandered an opportunity to give Italy the lead early in the second period when he robbed Sergio Ramos of the ball out wide.
He seemed to dither for an eternity with only Casillas to overcome, but his hesitancy enabled Ramos to make a fabulous recovery tackle. Having been booked in the first half for a late tackle on Jordi Alba - one of seven men booked in a fiercely contested match - he was replaced by Di Natale, who had scored within four minutes of his introduction.

The end of forward thinking

Football without strikers? It seems unthinkable, but Carlos Alberto Parreira, who led Brazil to World Cup glory in 1994, predicts 4-6-0 as the formation of the future


Five years ago, (tahun 2003) at the coaching conference he hosts in Rio de Janeiro, Carlos Alberto Parreira made a prediction that left the room stunned. Discussing how tactics might evolve, the coach who had led Brazil to victory in the 1994 World Cup, suggested that the formation of the future might be 4-6-0

Pain in the grass: Barcelona whining will do Spain no favours


Xavi, Andres Iniesta and Cesc Fabregas all complained about the playing surface following La Roja's 1-1 draw with Italy - but Vicente del Bosque's side have more pressing problems

It was a 'disaster', they said. Not the result, not the defending, nor the decision to field Fabregas as a false nine. No, Spain's midfield maestros were moaning about the pitch. And it wasn't the first time.

Vicente del Bosque's side had flattered to deceive in Sunday night's Euro 2012 meeting with Italy in Group C and only looked the better team late on in the 1-1 draw as the Azzurri were stretched by the pace of a more orthodox striker in Fernando Torres, and the width provided by winger Jesus Navas. Self-assessment was called for, but only criticism came.

"I can't complain," Cesc commented. But he did anyway. "We deserved much more. It's shameful that we still have to play on pitches like that," the 25-year-old added after a game in which he had struggled but scored his sole opportunity of note to cancel out Antonio Di Natale's 59th-minute opener.

And his Barca team-mate Andres Iniesta was even more scathing in his evaluation of the playing surface. "Seeing the pitch in those conditions is a disaster," the mild-mannered midfielder mused. "It was incredibly dry and that makes circulation of the ball difficult."
HOW THE PITCH CAN HELP SPAIN


In a recent interview with Goal.com, former Almeria coach, friend and mentor of Pep Guardiola, Juanma Lillo, explained the significance of the playing surface to a team like Spain.

"The pitch is extremely important, not decisive because there is nothing decisive in life, but important nonetheless," he said.

"The pitch is always a factor, for everyone, but for a team that likes to get the ball on the floor and play it fast to find players in attacking positions it becomes essential."

Xavi agreed: "The fact that they didn't water the pitch persecuted our dynamic and fluid play," he added. And even Barca captain Carles Puyol, laid low with a knee injury but watching the game on television, weighed in as he wrote on Twitter: "If they water the pitch you'll see better football."

Barca have complained before, on numerous occasions in fact, notably following a goalless game at San Siro against AC Milan in the Champions League earlier this season. Then the pitch was too wet; on Sunday it was too dry.

The Catalans' constant complaints did little for their self-belief or their cause as other sides soon learned how little they enjoyed playing on non-perfect pitches. With Barcelona, however, there was always the chance to take teams back to a well-watered Camp Nou and play at least half the time on a favourable field.

But there is no such luxury for Del Bosque's men at Euro 2012. The continental competition sees 16 sides do battle on neutral ground and while Spain prefer a smooth and slippery surface, other teams may not. So why should the hosts or the tournament organisers pander to the capricious champions?

They should not. Equally, however, there is no need for Del Bosque's men to complain. Although stripped of striker David Villa and defender Puyol through injury, Spain's squad still boast the best at Euro 2012 and La Roja's hopes rest on their pedigree players - not on the state of the pitch.

After Spain lost to Switzerland in the opening match of the 2010 World Cup, the players got together, aired their views and worked on their weaknesses before stringing six successive victories together to claim the trophy in South Africa.

Similar self-assessment is now needed if an unprecedented third international title in a row is to be claimed. But there are issues to be addressed, namely the defence, the balance in midfield and the central striker position.

So the Barcelona brigade would do well to stop the whining and scratch below the surface - because that's where the real problems lie.

Euro 2012 Results: Fernando Torres Finds Redemption for Spain vs. Ireland

Is it just me, or does Fernando Torres look better in red than he does in blue?

Chances are, El Niño himself would think so. His first foray in warmer hues for Spain at Euro 2012 didn't go so swimmingly, as the 28-year-old striker botched a trio of scoring opportunities after coming on as a 75th-minute substitution during what turned out to be a 1-1 draw with Italy in the Group C opener.

He looked much more comfortable, though, in a starting role on Thursday in a 4-0 win for the Furia Roja, albeit against a hopelessly overmatched Ireland squad.

Not that the caliber of opponent can or should necessarily devalue the fact that Torres put forth arguably his finest performance on the pitch in a year-and-a-half.

As in, since he was sold by Liverpool to Chelsea in the most expensive intraleague transfer in the history of the English Premier League.


Granted, Torres didn't suddenly or miraculously rediscover the same speed that made him so dynamic with Atletico Madrid and Liverpool, not to mention the Spanish national team. But he did play with a level of confidence that had seemingly escaped him while in a Chelsea shirt, even as the Blues bore their way through the FA Cup and the UEFA Champions League.

Despite struggling through crippling bouts of self-doubt and failing to find solid footing amidst a coaching carousel at Stamford Bridge, Torres managed to chip in 11 goals and 16 assists for the Blues, at times showing flashes of the Fernando of old.

But never for quite as long as he did against the Irish. He finished off a beautiful run by David Silva with a cracker of a goal in the fourth minute and hooked up again with Silva in the 70th minute to put Spain up 3-0. In between, Torres did a terrific job of linking on the attack and pressing on defense.

Of course, there's no telling whether this was just a flash in the pan, whether Torres will be able to parlay his latest success into something more against a much more formidable opponent in Croatia.

Or whether he can capture lightning in a bottle and bring it back with him to England, where he'll once again be fighting for time at striker with Chelsea.

In the meantime, at least Torres can take comfort in knowing that he's still capable of being a productive force on the pitch for the best international squad in the world.
