Torres is seen as one of the greatest strikers and natural finishers in the world, both on FM and in real life. His amazing finishing and dribbling skills allows him to round any defender in the world, contributing to his prolific goal scoring record. His pace and brilliant footwork makes him an obvious candidate to play as a target man for any team, providing the ball is played either to his feet, or to allow him to run onto it. Torres plays best (from personal opinion) when he is played on his own upfront, with supporting attacking midfielders and wingers, providing him with through balls and crossers to get on the end of.
