In January 2004 he left Real España after he refused to take up Honduran citizenship which the club asked him to bypass the foreign player quota. He then joined fellow Panamanian Donaldo González at Marathón and he moved to Iran to play alongside compatriot Carlos Rivera with local giants Persepolis.
In January 2007, Torres returned to Honduras to play for Victoria after an unsuccessful spell with Persepolis. Later he played in Guatemala for second division sides Deportivo Saranate and Deportivo Guastatoya. He returned to Panama in January 2010 after 14 years abroad when signed by Sporting San Miguelito.
Torres made his debut for Panama in an October 1999 friendly match against Trinidad and Tobago and has earned a total of 75 caps, scoring no goals. He represented his country in 23 FIFA World Cup qualification matches and was a member of the 2005 CONCACAF Gold Cup team, who finished second in the tournament and he also played at the 2009 CONCACAF Gold Cup.
His final international was a June 2009 friendly match against Haiti.
