Fernando’s Late Strike Helps The Club To Win

Fernando Torres is known to have scored some goals that have been important and crucial for the teams he has played for and his most recent accomplishment has been the late strike that he did to save Sagan Tosu from being relegated to the second tier. That is what his performance helped to do, to save the team from being added to the second tier among the Japanese football teams. The score stood at 1-1 with Sagan playing against Yokohama F Marinos.

Matters had been leveled by Mu Kanazaki on the field after which, in a duration of seven minutes, the former Atletico, Liverpool and Chelsea striker came on and struck outside the box to be able to gain a great finish for his team. Tosu, as a team, has not been firmly grounded in the relegation zone. Hence, they needed a crucial victory and gain points that would help them stay on and not get relegated to J-League 2. The victory they obtained due to the performance of Fernando Torres has helped them gain 40 points that are necessary to prevent automatic relegation.

The final game they face is with Kashima Antlers. If they are able to gain victory over this team, their 15th rank would go up to 11th; however, they need to tread carefully as the format of J-League still has terms that can bring them to a demoted position. Torres has been signed on for Tosu from the month of July this year. At the age of 34, he has recently left Atleti, which was his boyhood club. He also played against Andres Iniesta, a former colleague from Spain that was nostalgic for him. This season will hopefully see him help Tosu move up the ranks and end the finals successfully for his club
