Spain slaughter Poland

MURCIA, June 9- Fernando Torres scored in Spain's 6-0 rout of Poland on Tuesday as the Liverpool striker handed the European champions a timely World Cup boost.
The 26-year-old, who underwent knee surgery in April, was on target in the 75th minute of the friendly international with a cool, sharp finish from a cross by Pedro after coming on as a second-half substitute.

It was Torres’s 24th international goal and came just 10 minutes after he replaced David Villa.

Villa and David Silva had given Spain a 2-0 lead with goals in the 12th and 14th minutes with Xabi Alonso adding a third in the 51st.

Cesc Fabregas added to the tally in the 57th minute before Pedro added the sixth in the 80th minute after setting up Torres’s goal.

Spain open their World Cup Group H campaign against Switzerland on June 16 before playing Honduras on June 21 and Chile on June 25.
