Choose your Fernando

The question on my mind entering the big semifinal matches is who should be David Villa's striking partner? In the last two matches, against Portugal and Paraguay, there were three relevant coincidences. In both matches, David Villa scored Spain's only goal in a 1-0 victory, Fernando Torres was ice cold, but then Fernando Llorente gave Spain a nice spark off the bench. Llorente was particularly impressive in the Portugal match, and it seemed like he would score almost immediately upon entering the game. Llorente is an especially dangerous threat with his head on crosses and corner kicks, and appears to have a confidence that Torres lacks.

So, what is the verdict? Which Fernando will get the start against the German Mannschaft?

  1. Torres. He's better than people give him credit for. Hard worker, runs far, has to be accounted for.
