Torres up for FIFA goal of the year award

Our Spanish sensation may not have won a trophy since arriving at Anfield in 2007, but he has won plenty of individual awards and plaudits.

Fernando Torres’ goal against Blackburn back in April is in the running for FIFA’s Goal of the Year Award alongside 9 others, including Ronaldo, Abebayor, Iniesta and Essien.

Torres’ van-Basten-like volley, which he later dedicated to the families of the 96 with the match being on the eve of the 20th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster, won the Premier League goal of the season.
