Torres not a bad bet for top scorer

OVER the next few days in Europe, most of the attention will fall on the most high-profile stars.

The only thing is that the Euros have a habit of making heroes of much more unfashionable players.

•In 2008, one of the stars of the tournament was Turkey's Hamit Altintop. In 2004, that was Theo Zagorakis while Milan Baros was top scorer.

Given that Fernando Torres scored the winner four years ago, he may not exactly be unfashionable. But the only trend to his career over the past two years has been turmoil.

•Except, suddenly, he's looking relatively revitalised. He may well energise Spain again... and isn't a bad bet for top scorer.
