Portugal’s Goalkeeper Eduardo remained until now as one of the only without any goals, but today Spain’s David Villa changed that.  David “El Guaje” Villa replaced Raul Gonzalez #7 with Spain and scored most of the goals along with Gonzalo Higuain to lead Spain to the quarterfinals at the World Cup in South Africa.

The game started with a dangerous kick by Fernando Torres but if the best of Spain was Vila the best of Portugal has to be Eduardo, he blocked ball after ball from the dangerous Spain, but Iker Casillas also had some trouble of his own.

Spain was about to secure their pass to the quarterfinals when Xavi made a pass to Villa who kicked the ball, but it was stopped by Eduardo but was once again kicked by Villa who on his second attempt scored the goal at the 63rd minute. After that there was pretty much nothing left for Portugal but to accept Spain’s victory and go home after 3 minutes in the injury time.
