Fernando Torres misses point-blank, wide-open shot in Chelsea friendly

Monday July 28th, 2014

Ouch. Fernando Torres isn't helping his cause for more playing time at Chelsea, which just brought back legend Didier Drogba and signed striker Diego Costa.

Torres missed a point-blank header in Chelsea's friendly Sunday vs. Olimpija Ljubljana. After a cross from Nathan Axe, Torres attempted to fling the ball into a wide-open net with his upper body. His attempt went well over the net. 

Despite Torres' miss, Chelsea beat Olimpija Ljubljana, 2-1.
