Fernando Torres is already a soccer idol: his pacy runs and instinctive goal scoring has won the hearts and minds of millions of fans. This biography explores his rise from child prodigy to one of the greatest players on earth. Fanatical about the great game from an early age, Fernando joined Atletico Madrid in 1995 at just 11 and three years later was voted best under-15 player in Europe. A few seasons on, and after many stunning goals, Torres was named Atletic's youngest ever captain, going on to score 21 goals in 20034. Since signing to Liverpool, Torres has not looked back. Torres was the highest foreign goal-scorer in a debut season in Premier League history with 33 goals in 20078. To top it all off, he produced an incredible performance to lead Spain to victory at Euro 2008, scoring the winning goal in the final. (pb)
