Spain coach Julen Lopetegui: There'll be more opportunites for David Villa

Spain coach Julen Lopetegui says David Villa will have "more opportunities".

The New York City FC striker will miss their clash with Leichtenstein due to injury.

Lopetegui said of the former Barcelona forward: “Villa's injury is a real chore.

"It's sad, but there will be more opportunities. I wasn't listening to the Bernabéu asking for Villa [to come on], I couldn't make it out. I was concentrating on the game. He came on because it was a good change."
