England Captain Terry Fears Spain's Torres

England and Chelsea captain John Terry has spoken out of his fears that Fernando Torres will terrorise the English defence like he has been doing to club rearguards in the Premier League since he first arrived from Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2007.

Torres scored 33 goals in his rookie season in the top English league, and is starting to return to form after being sidelined through injury this campaign.

'El Nino' even boasts a good record against Chelsea, having struck three goals against the Blues. On 18 August 2007 Torres netted his first ever goal in Liverpool's red colours at Anfield against the Stamford Bridge outfit, and recently bagged a last-gasp brace against the struggling west Londoners, again at Anfield.

Terry has today admitted that he is hoping the tradition of scoring against his side does not translate to the international scene, and is quoted by Liverpool's official website as saying:

"He's only just coming back from his injury but he's looked so sharp and is scoring goals.

"It's frightening to think what he'll be like when he hits full fitness, hitting the form he did last year and getting even more goals than last season," Terry said. "He's World class," he added.

"Spain are a top side with some fantastic players, some I really admire like Xavi, Torres, David Villa."
