Fernando Torres Joins PES 2010

Liverpool and Spain striker joins Lionel Messi as the face of PES 2010
Konami Digital Entertainment has announced that Liverpool FC and Spanish international striker Fernando Torres will join Lionel Messi as the cover stars of PES 2010, the latest installment in the Pro Evolution Soccer series scheduled to be available this Autumn for PC, PS3, PS2 and Xbox 360. Fernando Torres was born in Madrid in 1984, and gained acclaim by helping Spain win the Under 16 UEFA European Championships in 2001 scoring the only goal in the final against France. His pace and prowess in front of goal saw him signed by Atlético de Madrid as an 11-year-old, making his mark in the first team from the age of 17 and scoring 82 goals in 214 league appearances for the club. This form took him to Liverpool for a £26m fee in 2007, where his prolific strike rate has continued and has seen him cement his place in the senior Spanish national squad. Torres was a pivotal figure in Spain’s successful EURO 2008 campaign where he again scored the only goal in the final against Germany.
