Fernando Torres scored his first goal for Spain in 20 months as the European Championship holders beat South Korea 4-1 in a friendly.

The Chelsea striker nodded in his side's opener before Kim Do-heon equalised for the Koreans, only for Xabi Alonso, Santi Cazorla and Alvaro Negredo to strike in the second-half ahead of Euro 2012.

Torres' goal means he is now the fourth highest Spanish goalscorer of all-time, and coach Vicente del Bosque eulogised the 28-year-old's display.

He told the Spanish football federation's website: "He is one of those players that offers speed, movement and combination play with his team-mates.

"He seemed delighted with the goal and this is good for everyone.''
