London: Spanish custodian Jose Reina believes Chelsea star Fernando Torres will take Euro 2012 by storm.

Reina says Torres has proved to be the real deal and expects more to come from his former Liverpool team-mate as Spain prepare to face Croatia in their Group C decider tomorrow night.

“Everyone has ups and downs in his career and surely he is coming up again. I think he was in good form, in good shape. He’s looking really sharp in training and that’s the Fernando I know. I’m glad for him,” the Daily Express quoted Reina, as saying.

The bookies now have Spain down as joint favourites with Germany to win Euro 2012, but Reina claims that is an insult.

“We don’t care about the bookies. We just want to win. But we won in the last World Cup – so surely we can be considered favourites,” he added.
