Liverpool`s Torres suffers ankle damage, travels to Spain

London :Liverpool striker Fernando Torres has suffered an ankle ligament strain but will join up with the Spain squad for Wednesday`s friendly international with Portugal, Liverpool said on Sunday.

The 26-year-old, who picked up the injury in Saturday`s 2-0 Premier League defeat at Stoke City, will be further assessed by Spain`s medical staff, the club said in a statement.

Torres had only recently returned to form after a poor spell in a struggling Liverpool side, scoring three times in as many games, including both goals in a 2-0 win over Chelsea this month.

World and European champions Spain play Portugal in Lisbon.
