Curitiba, Brazil: David Villa extended his record goalscoring run at the World Cup on Monday and broke down in tears as he left the field as a Spain player for the final time.
Despite crashing out of the tournament, the world and European champions ended their World Cup campaign with a 3-0 victory over Australia 3-0. Villa registeried his 59th international goal in his 97th and final appearance just before half-time.
However, the country's all-time leading goalscorer was surprisingly replaced by Vicente del Bosque just before the hour mark. Despite being consoled by teammates, Villa cut a dejected figure as his stellar international career came to an end.
