Mocking Fernando Torres is all too easy at times, and it's quickly forgotten that in between the hilarious misses from point-blank range, he is also capable of some brilliance.

Take this moment from Sunday's friendly between Chelsea and Olimpija Ljubljana, which featured a tragicomic Torres miss.

As you can see from the clip above, in the same game, Torres also played a sensational backheel-flicked pass to keep a move alive. 

Not too shabby.
