Villa scored 108 league goals for Valencia, an average of 22 a season. In that time, he helped the team to Copa del Rey victory in the 2007/08 season, and his goals were one of the main reasons why his team played in three editions of the Champions League.

Success for Spain

Villa made an even bigger name for himself on the international scene. He helped Spain to the Euro 2008 title in Austria and Switzerland, where he was the tournament’s top scorer. He has since gone on to become the highest goalscorer in the history of the Spanish national team, and was also the joint top scorer at the South Africa World Cup in 2010, where Spain won the title for the first time ever. Villa had already signed for FC Barcelona at the time, although he had yet to make his debut for the Catalan giants.
