It's Fernando Torres's Birthday! Chelsea Footballer Can Smile After Two Goals

Fernando Torres’s birthday on Tuesday, March 20 sees the Chelsea footballer turn 28.

Torres got what he can consider as his ideal gifts on Sunday, after he scored two goals against Leicester City in the English FA Cup to help the Blues enter the semifinals.

Torres also made two assists in the match, but he had before then undergone a miserable spell that made him goalless in over 25 hours of play.

Certainly, the Spanish forward has reasons to smile now—even if only for a moment. The Daily Mail quoted him saying after his attainment at the weekend:

“I needed those goals…I'd been working so hard. I found the net so it's a good day for me, I feel happy.”

However, reports indicate that the former Liverpool striker is not guaranteed a place in the Spanish national squad for the UEFA Euro 2012 tournament.

“I'll have to see how Torres finishes the season,” Spanish coach Vicente del Bosque told Gazzetta dello Sport.

Obviously, the competition for birthday boy Fernando Torres is with none other than his rival Soldado.

The Valencia player seemed to be in top shape against Athletic Bilbao as he netted a hat-trick, which boosted his chances of performing in the Ukraine-Poland tournament this summer.

Clearly, there is still much that Torres should be concerned about, but for now, he might decide to put his stress aside and enjoy his transition in his new age.

Torres was born in 1984, in Fuenlabrada, Spain.
