The best moment of my career? Maybe, when the referee called the end of the final and Spain was World Cup champion in 2010. It was a privilege to have been part of this generation and been able to enjoy that success.

South Africa 2010 Final

โšฝ๏ธ Record man!

Villa is Spain's all-time top scorer.

He played 98 games with ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ and scored 59 goals

DID YOU KNOW...?

Villa is right-handed but he broke his right leg when he was a child and as he could not stop playing, his dad suggested practising with the other leg. That is how how he became so skilful with his left foot.

WHAT'S NEXT?

Villa is an investor of Queensboro FC, a club that will make its USL debut in 2021. He will stay connected with the beautiful game through this project, as well as opening several academies in different countries.


ยกGracias Guaje!
