Birthday boy Fernando with his cake alongside Juan Mata at Chelsea Cobham Training Ground today
Fernando Torres’s birthday on Tuesday, March 20 sees the Chelsea footballer turn 28. Torres got what he can consider as his ideal gifts on Sunday, after he scored two goals against Leicester City in the English FA Cup to help the Blues enter the semifinals.
Torres also made two assists in the match, but he had before then undergone a miserable spell that made him goalless in over 25 hours of play.
Certainly, the Spanish forward has reasons to smile now—even if only for a moment. The Daily Mail quoted him saying after his attainment at the weekend:
“I needed those goals…I'd been working so hard. I found the net so it's a good day for me, I feel happy”.
Clearly, there is still much that Torres should be concerned about, but for now, he might decide to put his stress aside and enjoy his transition in his new age.
Torres was born in 1984, in Fuenlabrada, Spain.
