Fernando Torres looks back over Spain’s Euro triumph in the ‘Robinson Report’

The Spain number ‘9’ joined team-mates, ex-national team manager Luis Aragones, doctors and physios, in a programme presented by ex-Liverpool player Michael Robinson (Spanish languaje). The half an hour long ‘Robinson Report’ looked at Spain’s Euro triumph from the day the squad arrived in Austria (with the warm reception they received from everybody at their headquarters), to the final versus Germany in Vienna. The programme mixed interviews with Fernando Torres, Pepe Reina, Iker Casillas, Inesta, Xavi, Marchena, Cesc, Luís Aragones, Villa, Sergio Ramos, Puyol, Xabi Alonso, Senna, Capdevila, Cazorla… with footage from the Championships.

Torres reflected on Spain’s Euro victory saying that the triumph was just what the country needed (the Spanish national team had gone 44 years since they last lifted silverware in a major international tournament).

The opening goal against Russia in Spain’s debut is given special importance. David Villa knocked the ball into an empty net after receiving a pass from Torres. The Liverpool forward talks about his country’s first goal at Euro 2008: “Strikers are normally selfish but the important thing was for the team to win.”

The programme continues to follow Spain’s progress through the group stages, quarter-finals and the semis. In the final against Germany, Luis told Fernando that he would score two goals. Fernando had a headed effort come back off the post but made no mistake with his second effort on goal.

Torres describes how it felt like dream to be a part of Spain’s success story, instead of having to watch the game sat on the sofa at home. Fernando also analyses the game’s only goal and how his strike in the 2008 European Championship Final earned him, “a place in the Spanish football’s history books.”
