David Villa

David Villa Sánchez (Spanish pronunciation: [daˈβið ˈβiʎa]; born 3 December 1981 in Langreo, Spain), nicknamed El Guaje (The Kid in Asturian) is a Spanish footballer who currently plays as a striker for Valencia CF and Spain.

Villa made his international debut in 2005 against San Marino. He has since participated in two major tournaments: 2006 World Cup and Euro 2008. He scored three goals at the 2006 World Cup and was top scorer at Euro 2008 with four goals. He is the second top scorer of all time for Spain behind only Raul González. Statistics (based on goal importance and the tournament they were scored in) demonstrate Villa to be the most prolific goalscorer in the world between 2005–2009, seeing the back of the net over 156 times, while The International Federation of Football History & Statistics (IFFHS) listed him 4th in the "World's Top Goal Scorer 2009" rankings.[5] Villa has two children with his wife Patricia and often attends charity events supported by sports personalities.
