Time for El Nino to Impress Mourinho

Time for El Nino to Impress MourinhoFernando Torres has been in outstanding form for the national side lately. The Spaniard has scored 5 goals in 120 minutes for La Roja in the Confederations Cup and is favorite to win the golden boot prize.
Much has been talked about El Nino’s future at Stamford Bridge after the arrival of new manager Jose Mourinho. The club wants to sign a top quality striker, Jose usually plays with a lone striker upfront and if Cavani does join then Torres may have to warm the bench.
Chelsea number 9 is adamant that he wants to stay at the club to win the premier league next season and fight for his place no matter what. His current run of form might be brilliant but that against teams ranked 138 (Tahiti) and 31 (Nigeria) respectively.
As we move into the final stages of the competition, now is the time for El Nino to impress Mourinho.
The game against Italy in the last four is the one where real test starts. The European and World champions are surely going to be favorites going into the fixture. On the other hand Italy will be without star striker Mario Balotelli who was ruled out of the game.
Although, Spain dismantled Azzuri in the final of European Championships 4-0 last summer and Torres did score a goal after coming on from the bench, still it will completely be a different scenario this time around.
Former Liverpool star has never been able to replicate his Anfield form for the Blues. His torrid scoring record speaks for itself especially in the league where he has failed to move into double figures for a season.
The Spaniard has only started 1 game out of 3 in Confederations cup but has been fantastic. On the other hand, since Soldado missed decent scoring opportunities in the last game, chances are that Torres will start for La Roja on Thursday.
Torres claims that he has nothing to prove to Mourinho but perhaps he might just have to. Will he be able to shine again and impress his new boss, we shall see.
