Fernando Torres credits Japanese cartoon Captain Tsubasa for inspiring him to be a footballer

Chelsea have arrived in Japan for the Club World Cup -- a tournament Fernando Torres is taking seriously and a place that means a lot to him since it's the birthplace of the animated series Captain Tsubasa. The series was about a young footballer named Tsubasa Oozora, who ran around with dead-eyed intensity and executed fantastical moves while leading his teams to glory. It inspired some of the world's greatest players in recent memory like Alessandro Del Piero, Zinedine Zidane and Leo Messi and Torres says it did the same for him. (Captain Tsubasa, Culture)
