Fernando Torres may not be the same player he was five years ago but this goal proves he’s still capable of playing at the highest level.

The Spanish striker scored his first La Liga goal for almost eight years after just three minutes in Saturday’s 2-0 win over Getafe.

Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone has only picked Torres a handful of times since bringing him back for a second spell at the Vicente Calderón, with his most notable goalscoring performances coming in the Copa Del Rey against Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Torres’ goal against Getafe was his first league strike since 2007.
