3.- Villa’s competitive spirit.

‘Guaje’ is one of the players who always needed to be inside the pitch in order to score the important goals that moved the squad forward.

Unless he played for FC Barcelona, the Spaniard was always right there to pick up the slack from his teammates.

As a perfect example, it was Villa who scored that winning goal against Paraguay in the FIFA World Cup back in 2010.

There was also a time when he scored an incredible volley against Italy, a goal that gave Spain the victory during a World Cup qualifier.

Villa is always in the right place and at the right moment.
