Villa scores in Span­ish win

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Classifieds -

CHILE .................................... 1 SPAIN .................................... 2 DAVID Villa set Spain on their way to the vic­tory that sealed top spot in Group H, curl­ing the ball into the net from fully 45 yards af­ter Chilean keeper Clau­dio Bravo had charged out of his goal to clear.

His clear­ance only went as far as the Barcelona new­comer who made no mis­take to score his third goal of the tour­na­ment.

Villa then turned provider for his new Barca team-mate An­dres Ini­esta to make it 2-0 and to make mat­ters worse Marco Estrada was sent off for clip­ping the heels of Fer­nando Tor­res.

The 10 men of Chile did pull one back through sub­sti­tute Ro­drigo Mil­lar with vir­tu­ally his first touch but it re­mained 2-1 and both teams pro­gressed.
