On this day 15 years ago, Fernando Torres scored an amazing goal in the Champions League for Liverpool against Inter Milan.

The Reds beat Inter 3-0 on aggregate in the Round of 16 as they became the fourth English side to book their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League that season, with talisman Torres the fulcrum of their side.

Torres broke the deadlock for Liverpool on 64 minutes at San Siro to all but end Inter’s hopes of progressing, when he received a pass from Aurelio on the edge of the box, before spinning and arrowing a shot past Julio Cesar at his near post.
