Madrid: Spanish star striker Fernando Torres is not letting his Euro 2016 snub stop him from focusing on leading his club Atletico Madrid to a maiden Champions League triumph over Real Madrid.
Torres with his goals helping the club to a third-place finish in La Liga and a Champions League final showdown against Real on May 28.
Despite his 12-goal haul this season, Torres was not selected in Spain's Euro 2016 squad. "I'm not worried about the Euro, I've got the biggest game of my life to play. We are facing an opportunity that life does not give you many times," Torres said.
Torres went on to claim that playing arch-rivals Madrid in the final does not make the game any more or less special.
"We see an opportunity to do something that has never been done. There is obviously a rivalry with Real Madrid but that changes in Europe, the games from before count for nothing."
