David Villa, the hat-trick man

At Innsbruck, Spain beat Russia 4-1. Three Spanish goals were made by David Villa Sanchez while Cesc Fabregas scored the fourth one. Roman Pavluchenko scored Russian goal.

The Valencia player amazed in the first half and was part of the best attacking duo in the EURO 2008 with Fernando Torres.

Without Torres (who was replaced by Cesc Fabregas), in the second half Villa and Cesc took advantage of the counterattacks and scored twice again.

Russians were not the same as they were in previous matches and they missed Pavel Pogrebnyak (injured) and Andrei Arshavin (suspended, will return against Greece).

David Villa has scored 17 goals with the Spanish National Team t-shirt and had scored 18 goals in the Spanish League 2007-2008.

Well football is coming in the EURO and also, we are able to enjoy fair play: no yellow cards in this match! This success allowed Spanish fans to dream with better performances next weeks.

The Lineups:
Spain: Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Marchena, Puyol, Capdevila, Silva, Senna, Xavi, Iniesta (Cazorla 63), Villa, Torres (Fabregas 54).

Russia: Akinfeev, Aniukov, Shirokov, Kolodin, Zhirkov, Sychev (Bystrov 46) (Adamov 70), Zyryanov, Semak, Semshov (Torbinsky 57), Bilyaletdinov, Pavluchenko.

Goals: 20, 45 and 75 min David Villa; 91 min, Cesc Fabregas (ESP). 86 min; Roman Pavluchenko (RUS).

Hi there, great Blog - vamos Espana!

Villa has increased his price-tag with the hat-trick - now Chelsea or Real will have to break the bank and Valencia need the money.
