Funny looking picture of Cesc and Torres.
David Silva: Hustled to try and get the ball to Torres early in the first half.
Struggled very much late in the first half with bad passes and losing the ball.
Got an easy goal after faking out an Irish defender and the Irish keeper Shay Given to make it 2-0.
I would give Silva a seven, but the goal gives him a boost in rating.
Andres Iniesta: A bit sloppy at first but took a great shot at the goal in the 23rd minute.
Began to take on defenders one-on-one late in the first half.
Andres had some good shots blocked by the Irish defenders.
Iniesta along with Xavi and Silva are simply taking all these defenders on and creating goal-scoring opportunities for La Roja.
Fernando Torres: Golazo de Torres at the four minute mark. Torres looked like the Torres of old as he battled the Irish defense and launched it passed the keeper.
Fernando got his brace at the 70th minute as Torres has onside and put it past the keeper.
Yup, I’m going to do it: I’m giving Fernando Torres a 10!
El Niño is back.
Let's hope he stays "back" for the rest of Euro 2012.
Cesc Fabregas: Came in for Torres.
What a wonderful goal Cesc has in the 83rd minute as he took the corner kick, passed one defender and absolutely slammed the ball to the far post as it hit the woodwork and into the back of the net.
Two goals in two games for Fabregas.
Vicente Del Bosque may want to consider moving either Xabi Alonso or Sergio Busquets to the bench and place Fabregas in the starting XI in a future game.
Javi Martinez: Javi came in for Xabi Alonso who had a yellow card to his name.
Didn’t do much then again, he didn’t need to do much. Got a yellow card in the 76th minute.
He’s still young player in need of more time on the pitch with the national team. He gets a lower rating only because of the yellow card that he pick up.
Rating: 6 ½
Santi Cazorla: Came on for Andres Iniesta in the 80th minute.
Like Javi Martinez, didn’t need to do too much. Had a shot at goal in the 82nd minute just before Cesc’s golazo. It was good to see Santi get some time on the pitch.
