Fernando Torres rolled back the years for Atletico Madrid against Villareal on Wednesday night, showing incredible composure to snatch a late winner for Los Rojoblancos.

Torres entered the proceedings on the 62nd minute, and proved to be the difference between the sides, catching Villareal on the counter attack before easily dispatching of the goalkeeper and making a mockery of the Villareal defence.

The most impressive part of the goal was the pace shown by the 31-year-old striker. Is it inconceivable to think Torres could be leading the line for Spain at Euro 2016? Not on this evidence.

El Nino is a confidence player and if he continues to perform to this level for Atleti, there’s no reason why he cannot regain the form that made him an icon at Anfield.
