Spain Hotshot David Villa Delighted With Goal Against England

The Spanish hot-shot was delighted to have notched up a record-breaking goal to help La Furia Roja extend their unbeaten run.

Spain have now gone 29 games without defeat following a solid 2-0 win over England in last night’s international friendly at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

Valencia’s David Villa opened scoring in the first half before Athletic Bilbao’s Fernando Llorente wrapped up the match safely with a late goal but it was the Los Che hit-man who continues winning all the plaudits.

He has now become the first ever Spanish player to score in six successive games with La Seleccion and he was understandably elated with the achievement.

“I am very happy with the goal. Truth is, I really want to see it on TV,” he said during the post-match interviews.

“The record is very nice. I would never have imagined in years that I would be able to obtain it. I am very proud and I hope I can continue breaking records,” he added.

‘El Guaje’ then went on to praise Spain’s other goalscorer on the night, Llorente, who in sharp contrast to Villa, netted his very first goal with La Roja: “We can’t be happier to have a player like him out there on the field.

“He is a big lad and a great person who is doing brilliantly this season with his club,” he concluded.

Villa’s goal now draws him levelled with Emilio Butragueno with 26 goals to become the country’s joint-fourth highest goalscorer.
