Barcelona striker Villa delighted with Spain comeback goal

Barcelona striker David Villa is delighted to be back after his goal for Spain in victory over Saudi Arabia.

Villa, who has only recently returned to action after suffering a broken leg in December and missed Spain's successful European Championship defence this summer, slotted home a 63rd-minute penalty in the victory soon after replacing Fernando Torres.

Spain's all-time record goalscorer said: "It's obviously a special day to be able to return to the national team after so much time out, great for me, especially being back alongside my team-mates, because I've missed them both in matches and training.

"There's no need to look back now and I can look forward to enjoying myself again."
