Fernando Torres’ Late Goal Saves Sagan Tosu From Relegation

Fernando Torres keeps a history of scoring all important goals and he has added one more to his collection by Sagan Tosu from the relegation in the 2nd tier of the Japanese football within 78th minute.

With 1-1 score playing with Yokohama F Marinos when Mu Kanazaki had equalized matters from the spot 7 minutes earlier. The ball made to the former Liverpool, Atletico Madrid, and Chelsea striker outside the box and was able to come up with a striking finish that sparked some excellent scenes.

Tosu is known to be in and out of relegation zone but the important victory in this season’s penultimate game got them forty points. This helps in saving from automatic relegation to the J-League 2. The winner of Torres has condemned Kashiwa Resyol to football in 2nd season with only one game to spare irrespective of them beating 3-0 of Cerezo Osaka.

Tosu is known to be 15th in the league and the win over Kashima Antlers on the ultimate day might see them finish in the eleventh position. Nonetheless, due to the J-League format, there is a way for Tosu to wind up suffering for the demotion. In case Nagoya is able to beat Shonan Bellmare and end up losing on the final day to Kashima, Tosu is going to be in a relegation play-off against his team which finishes in the 3rd position in the J-League 2. Thus, the one securing the win in this will have a place in next season of J-League.

Even though the win is sure to offer him the confidence of doing business as the week rolls in. 34-year-old Torres has signed for Torsu in the month of July after bowed out of the boyhood club Atleti having the Europa League trophy. He has joined Andres Iniesta and seeing both of them on the same pitch was nostalgia.
