Spain coach Vicente del Bosque cannot guarantee Liverpool striker Fernando Torres starting the World Cup final.
Del Bosque has previously said that he has no concerns over the 26-year-old’s fitness, but is still not certain whether he will feature in the first XI against Holland on Sunday.
“I don’t know if he will be in the line-up,” Del Bosque said. “It was a difficult choice. Torres has been helping us all along. His work is important even if it is not noticed. He is good at occupying the centre-backs. I didn’t talk to him before I announced the line-up (against Germany). But he is a very important part of the team. He is one of the key members of the squad and a lovely guy.”
