Torres wary of difficult semi-final

Fernando Torres has admitted that Italy will be a tough opponent, should Spain meet them in the semi-finals of the Confederations Cup.

La Roja play Nigeria this evening knowing that three points would see them top Group B and hand them a last four match-up with the Azzurri.

And the Chelsea striker has conceded that it will be a tough match, whilst also commenting on his own personal performances this term.

“Italy have been a very dangerous team throughout their history,” he told adidas.com. “They have always made it complicated for us.

“The same goes for Brazil – they will not be an easy opponent.

“Of course I'd like to end the tournament as top goalscorer, but that is not a goal I've set myself. I like to score for the good of the team.

“On a professional level, next year I want to win more titles [with Chelsea]. I believe that we can do that with the arrival of Mourinho.”
