Andres Iniesta's Breathtaking Volleyed Pass Sets Up Vissel Kobe's Third In Fernando Torres' Final Game

Andres Iniesta's Breathtaking Volleyed Pass Sets Up Vissel Kobe's Third In Fernando Torres' Final Game

Andres Iniesta stole the show on his friend and compatriot Fernando Torres' final game, producing the most saucy volleyed pass to set up Vissel Kobe's third goal against Sagan Tosu.

Vissel, who also have former Barcelona players David Villa, Thomas Vermaelen and Sergi Samper in their ranks, ran out 6-1 winners to spoil Torres' send-off over in Japan.

Iniesta was on the scoresheet in the 20th minute when he converted a penalty but his true piece of magic came a couple of minutes later in the form of a sensational pass on the volley from his own half.

It completely cut the Sagan defence apart and the move was aptly finished by a thunderous strike from Junya Tanaka.

The 35-year old is still balling over in the Far East but unfortunately had to come off just before half-time because of a hamstring injury.

Given the connection between the pair, Iniesta decided to pen an emotional letter to his former teammate ahead of the big game and the two skippers embraced in the tunnel and out on the pitch prior to the match.

After 18 glorious years in the game, Torres has elected to move on from playing football. The former Atletico Madrid, Liverpool and Chelsea forward scored over 250 goals in his club career, as well as scoring 38 times for Spain - with whom he was a World Cup and European Championship winner.
