2010 FIFA World Cup: Villa strikes, Portugal dreams End

David Villa nonstoppable on Tuesday evening. In scoring the one goal in Spain’s Round-of-16 win over the Portuguese. “Portugal were very stiff at the back and their keeper was in great form,” said a generous Villa after Spain had completed a small 1-0 win. “They didn’t make it easy for us, but I got one sight on goal and luckily it was enough.”

“Their keeper was terrific,” said Spain midfielder Xavi in honor of the impressive Eduardo. “He ended two or three great saves and even when we scored he made a superb stop from El Guaje.”

“I had a good game,” said by the Portuguese shotstopper, “but it wasn’t sufficient and in any case what really counts is the team’s performance and not what I do. It’s really trying to concede a single goal and get knocked out of the World Cup. Defence was believed to be one of our strong points but there was nothing we could do to stop them getting through.”
