“There was something in the air that night, The stars were bright, Fernando”
Cristiano Ronaldo might have been wearing his snazzy gold boots, but he and his club mates were blown away by an El Niño sporting a pair of Supernatural Adidas Predator Instinct’s at the Bernabeu. That’s right tropical storm Fernando is back in Spain and he’s back with a vengeance.
Making his second start since his return to Atleti on loan via
Chelsea AC Milan, Torres promptly shocked the known world by putting the visiting side up 1-nil (3-nil on aggregate) inside 60 seconds. While Sergio Ramos ensured both teams went into the first half level, Torres wasn’t just content with one goal, as the late Billy Mayes would have said;
That’s right it took all of just 30 seconds in the second half for Torres to double his tally. The second goal was a bit of a record setter, as Torres became the first player to score against Real Madrid in the opening minute of both halves. While Cristiano Ronaldo was able to level the game at two midway through the second half, it wasn’t enough to turn the tie, and Atleti’s returning hero was the main talking point as his side held on to win the tie 4-2 on aggregate and seal a spot in the quarter finals.
Hopefully El Niño has turned the page and found his scoring boots with his boyhood club. I’m just a little sad he didn’t celebrate his goals in this style
