Torres and Gerrard dream of Spain v England World Cup final

Liverpool players Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres are dreaming of a World Cup final between Spain and England states the Mirror. “The No.9 and No.8 sit next to each other in the changing room and even after training the banter never stops,” says the article.

Torres said: "It's a good rivalry, we talk about it a lot and dream about what might happen in future. To play against England is special for me. Already I noticed in the friendly match in Seville how big it was and to do it in an official competition would be enormous. England are one of the candidates to win the World Cup in 2010, without doubt. Stevie and myself have often spoken about our teams. Our dream would be for England and Spain to play in the final in South Africa. But Spain might win it."

But the friendly rivalry with Gerrard, hasn’t stopped the Spaniard heaping praise on the midfielder who was named Footballer of the Year last season.

Torres added: "Steve is the spirit of Liverpool and the key man in the team. As a person he is sensational too."
