David Villa delighted to see action for Spain in Italy victory

New York City FC striker David Villa was delighted to see action for Spain in victory over Italy.

La Roja won 3-0 in their World Cup qualifier, with Villa a late subtitute.

The ex-Barcelona striker remarked afterwards: "This feeling is very difficult to describe, I am so happy but I genuinely don't know if I deserve so much affection.

"Spain has played a great game so everybody is happy, this was a key match in terms of qualification and it makes me very happy that I've been trusted for such an occasion."
