World Cup 2010, Spain Vs. Paraguay: Not Even Goal Posts Can Stop David Villa From Giving Spain The Lead

Spain has finally broken through Paraguay, with David Villa becoming the tournament's leading scorer, banging in a shot of both goal posts in the 83rd minute to give the tournament favorites a 1-0 lead.

From nine yards out, Villa gathered a Pedro shot that had come off the left post, putting a shot to the other side of  goal.  The striker's shot hit the inside of the right post, went along the goal line and hit the left post, and went in for the match's first goal.

It was Villa's fifth goal of the tournament, putting Spain within minutes of a meeting with Germany in Wednesday's semifinal.
