EURO2008: Spain Wins Against Russia 4-1

David Villa scored the first hat-trick of Euro 2008 as Spain scored a fine victory against Russia in Group D.

Konstantin Zyryanov saw a shot hit the post but then Villa prodded past Igor Akinfeyev to double the lead and in the 74th minute he scored a third goal. Roman Pavlyuchenko headed in a consolation before Cesc Fabregas also headed a fourth goal, his first ever for Spain. Videos of the goals below.
