DURBAN: Striker Fernando Torres came on as a 62nd minute double substitution with Jesus Navas for Spain after the tournament favourites went 1-0 behind to Switzerland in their opening World Cup Group H match on Wednesday.

Torres was declared fit after recovering from knee surgery but the coach opted to start the match with David Villa playing as a lone forward. With the substitutions, Spain were playing with three strikers.

Spain started better but were stunned by Switzerland`s first real attack when Gelson Fernandes scored after 52 minutes.
