Fernando Torres: Facial Hair Officially Confirmed


In our ongoing consideration of whether Liverpool’s Fernando Torres should be placed on our Finest 5 list, we requested evidence that he, our favourite freckled player, was capable of growing facial hair. And so, this photo of confirmation was sent to us.

But herein lies the rub.  Our lovely Nando seems to be made from the elite breed of facial hair growth we call Barely Clinging.

One stiff breeze and those four chin hairs would be gone faster than you can say “onset of puberty”.

Your thoughts? Is this enough proof that our favourite freckle-faced boy is man enough for the job at hand?

Random: Iker avec scruff is attached for comparative reference.


cheers Malin!

    I don’t think the freckles make him look like a boy, I love freckles on men. Delicious! I’m all about his fine ass gracing the F5. But if it needs to grow on you some more, that’s fine w/ me too. :)

  2. Paris says:

    Kickette what more do you need, Nando belongs in the finest five!

  3. DC says:

    sorry Nando but Finest Five > Nando.

    the facial hair just doesn’t work on him. His face is too boyish for it. the freckles work, they do. but the four-five hairs he has on his chin just don’t.

  4. HiL says:

    he is definitely worthy! even though i didn’t like that weird moustache.. looks like a 13 year old boy who’s just starting to grow facial hair :X anyway.. he’s hot :P iker is sooo sexy and scruffy. perfect.

  5. annarosetorres says:

    The tash makes him age about 20 years… Nonono

  6. striker says:

    I'm not 100% convinced yet. My vote would be for Daniel Agger over Torres.

  7. Brandy says:

    Sorry girls, but I still find this boy child extremely unsexy with all his freckles, boniness and lack of manly man traits.

    Nando Nando Nando… shave that off, will ya? Nobody beats Xabi when it comes to the facial hair :) I don't know if I want him on the F5, to be honest (might have something to do with the fact that he might throw off Iker from the throne, and that would kill me!)

  10. Blair says:

    Torres = Ick (I know I’m so going to get caned for that.)

  11. devily says:

    I am all for adding him! ^^ to cute to be not on the list.. ;-)

  12. TorresLovahhh says:

    Yesssssss he should be on the list! If you really think about it, without the facial hair he looks really young, like "El Nino" that he represents ;) Plus, I'm sure you're also dying to put him on the list because you KNOW that he belongs there :D

  13. Crazylittlemadam says:

    Hmmm, can't say I'm overly fussed on that but yes, it IS proof so get him on there finally

  14. Baby Freya (Mrs Arbeloa) says:

    He is so totally worthy of Finest Five status! And ‘WOO!’ to Malin for getting famous!

  15. Dani.Mrs José Manuel Reina (PLQ) says:

    yes add him to the F5 immediately

  16. Becca says:

    Yeah, i agree. No facial hair. but i think hs up for the job :)

  17. Avenath says:

    Facial hair or no facial hair, Nando should be on that list!!!…

  18. j.lo says:

    Nando is damn sexy!!
    I just love those adorable freckles…although I just started to realize how many they are =)
    ..anyway, he just belongs to this list – he IS the list!!!
    Ps: facial hair is way overrated..

  19. Julia says:

    I think that Nando should be added! He’s just so cute and damn sexy (I like the freckles too of course ^^)!! And with the facial hair… i think a beard wouldn’t fit him at all <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

    P.S.: I love that page!! It’s really awesome!

  20. Cherry says:

    Torres has a bit more facial hair than what’s showing up in the photo. He’s super stunning and well deserving to be in the finest five. He’s in my top two.

  21. Berbie's Barbie says:

    Having facial hair aint gonna make Nando look any manlier….on the other hand..Iker looks hot with it!

  22. chill says:

    I agree with nando009. There's the facial hair you wanted! And who needs facial hair with eyes like that? :)

  23. Holyoke says:

    When it comes to scruff everyone fails against Xabi's ginger beard.

  24. LizB (Mrs. Vucinic) says:

    It's proof, but I'd rather he never grew it again. Clean shaven Nando is the way to go.

  25. Helle (Footiegirl) says:

    Lol, not so nice little pornstache happening there for Nando. Well, it's proof so guess that's what matters.. Now shave it off baby! And go back to normal level of hotness and cuteness!

  26. 'TorresNubianQu says:

    YES, YES, YES, kickette he definetley SHOULD be in the finest 5 come on what else does have to do to get in FF i think CESC reign in the FF has come to an end and make way for his Spanish Team mate a.k.a my boo TORRES who by the way luks good without the facial fuzz lol

  27. Blondie says:

    Definatley proof !! =)

  28. Rummy says:

    proof = promotion.

  29. Callie says:

    Oh poor Nando, he's trying to hard to get in…now shave that off

  30. carly says:

    Well, you gotta praise Malin for coming up with the evidence. I think he'll be 90 years old and still look like a boy. hehe

  31. Boston Red says:

    He needs to wash his upper lip.

  32. FootballerChick43 - says:

    Torres is alright. He's attractive, but theres just something about his appearance that bugs me. Other than that, I don't know anything so I'm leaving that comment as it is. I'm thinking we need some German blood on the F5. Christoph Metzelder anyone?

  33. Erin says:

    Some guys just don't grow nice facial hair. Nando would be one of them. But he's plenty manly and damn worthy of a F5 spot! It's only in the last 2 years or so that his looks have really matured, I think. He still has the adorable freckles, but the boyishness in his face has become more masculine. I can provide further photographic evidence if the case requires it. ;)

  34. Sophlg06 says:

    he should definitly go on the FF list. he is amazing. :) and he looks better with no facial hair.

  35. Nandia Mrs.The Ramos says:

    didnt realize he had so many freckles….i find them really cute! if goes on the f5 i think his buddy ramos should come back with him

  36. nando009 says:

    Photo evidence was requested and supplied. He should be promoted immediately! There were no minimum facial hair requirements.

  37. suzie says:

    I have to say both of the boys are looking mighty fine in pics. Nando is never going to be manly but his baby faced pretty boy look is what works for me. Put him on the list kickette, he’s obviously trying sooooo hard for you. you can tell he wants it.

  38. mrscudicini says:

    You know, nearly made him my toy boy for the query, but then I was, n, Nando is not a boy…but, uh, yeah, I know 12 year olds with more pronounced facial hair…sorry sweetie, grow up a little first…oh, and Kickette, the Iker…oh…keep it coming…

  39. Dreamgirl says:

    Everyone knows I love Nando to bits. He is the odd one out on my personal FF list. His looks go against everything I normally like. I think he deserves to go on.

    Btw facial hair is very overrated imo.

  40. GO says:

    Yeah it definitely doesn’t get more facial-hairy than that. Don’t care though.

  41. FirstTeamCoach says:

    Not a common opinion but no – he is not FF5 – to boyish, freckles are cute not sexy IMO. Owen is though FF5 material, manly all the way.

  42. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Aw, what a pathetic attempt at facial hair. Poor Nando. I love him, but he’ll never be in my F5.

  43. carly says:

    Well, you gotta praise Malin for coming up with the evidence.

    I think he’ll be 90 years old and still look like a boy. hehe

  44. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Aw, what a pathetic attempt at facial hair. Poor Nando. I love him, but he’ll never be in my F5.
