The prolific attacker won't be going to Brazil this summer, but is signing off his 2013-14 campaign with Sociedad in some style.
The Mexican attacker scored for the third game in a row for Real Sociedad in a 1-1 draw with Granada. Vela opened the scoring in the 78th minute before Odion Ighalo's stoppage-time goal earned a point for relegation-threatened Granada.
In contrast to the visitors, Sociedad entered the game with little to play for. A Champions League spot was out of reach, and a Europa League berth was assured for next season.
The goal was Vela's 15th league strike of the season, and 20th in all competitions. He also has 11 assists in the league for Sociedad this season.
