London, Sep.16 (ANI): Liverpool hitman Fernando Torres believes that his partnership with Steven Gerrard is the double act every Reds fan reckons can fire them to glory in tonight’s Champions League tie with Hungarian champs Debreceni.
Torres sees England’s deadly duo as the biggest threat to his chances of notching a famous double in South Africa next year.
The Sun quoted Torres, as saying: “I have never played with a better player than Stevie – for me he really is the best in the world. If Rooney can get an understanding with him, that will make England one of the most dangerous attacking forces in the world.”
“When a nation wins a major tournament there are always two players who form a devastating understanding. You had Ronaldinho and Ronaldo, Del Piero and Totti and, most recently, the understanding I had with David Villa.
“That is the sort of class I know Stevie and Wayne can be in if they get that understanding.
“They are world class and have the attributes to complement each other very nicely.
“But, most importantly, they show passion when playing for their country and you can’t win a tournament without that.” (ANI)
