Torres looks for better Wembley memories

Fernando Torres has admitted acting like a tourist on his maiden visit to Wembley last year - but there was only one souvenir on his mind ahead of Chelsea's FA Cup semi-final against Tottenham.

Despite being in England since 2007, Torres had to wait until November to play at the national stadium. It was not a happy memory as his Spain side were beaten 1-0 by England, Chelsea team-mate Frank Lampard with the winning goal.

Torres took plenty of stick at the club's training ground afterwards but knows he will be part of the celebrations this time - and one step closer to his first major trophy in English football - if Lampard leaves Wembley a winner again on Sunday.

Torres told the Blues' official website, "Wembley has so much history. English teams have a couple of chances every season to play there and it's massive.

"All the players want to play in those games - it's my fifth season in England but this is the first time I'm going there (with a club).

"It's very exciting because we have the chance to reach the final in a London derby, so it will be very nice to be there and to play, so I'm looking forward to it."
