I`d have put money on Fernando Torres being hammered by the Football Association after the incidents that occurred at Spurs.

But it would seem that Torres has escaped further punishment for the apparent scratching of Vertonghen`s face.

Regarding the incident, the official line from the FA is,

‘One of the match officials saw the coming together of the two players, albeit not in its entirety.”

‘In these particular circumstances, in line with The FA’s policy on when retrospective action may be taken, reviewed this summer by the game’s stakeholders, no action may be taken.’


As you`d expect the rest of the nation is up in arms!
