Fernando Torres is in good shape, despite looking sluggish so far at the World Cup as he comes off ankle surgery in April, midfielder Javier Martinez insisted on Sunday.
Yet Martinez says that â€œEl Ninoâ€ is in good shape.
â€œIt is not easy to come back off the kind of injury he has had â€“ but I think heâ€™s recuperating wellâ€ from his ankle problem.
â€œHeâ€™ll be back on his best form in the coming games.
â€œHe is still bringing a lot to the table for us with his versatility, losing his marker â€“ thatâ€™s all a boon for us,â€ added Martinez.
Spain take on neighbours Portugal in the round of 16 on Tuesday in Cape Town.
