The former Liverpool man is delighted to be back in the Spanish national team setup after almost a year without a call-up from Vicente del Bosque.
Torres has had another disappointing season having scored just five times in the Premier League for Jose Mourinho’s side.
However, national team boss del Bosque has reinvested his faith in the 30-year-old after giving him the nod in his 30-man provisional squad two weeks ago. Diego Costa is said to be Spain’s first choice to lead the line in next month’s World Cup provided that he overcomes a recurring knee injury which forced him to be substituted in his last two matches.
Torres was asked what he thought about the threat posed to his chances of starting for Spain after Costa’s impressive season which has seen him score 36 goals in 50 matches, “It’s a big step to be here ahead of Brazil but not definitively.

If I go (to the World Cup) I will crave the competition with anybody.

I have had it with Raul, Morientes, Villa, Negredo, Llorente, Soldado and it’s always been tough. With Diego Costa it will not change,” Torres told reporters at Spain’s training camp.
The Brazilian born-striker has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea which would provide a more regular battle for the starting berth at Stamford Bridge as well as for La Roja.
