Australia vs Spain player ratings World Cup 2014: Did David Villa top score in his last international game?

Australia 0 Spain 3: A closer look at the individual performances

Spain were able to leave Brazil with their heads held a little higher than they might have been thanks to a resounding victory over Australia in Curitiba.

David Villa opened the scoring with a fine flick off the inside of his heel during the first half. Spain's all-time leading scorer was later substituted before breaking down in tears after what was probably his last game for La Roja.

Back on the pitch, Chelsea striker Fernando Torres managed to find the back of the net before Manchester United's Juan Mata completed the scoring shortly before the end.

The result meant the reigning champions ended the Group Stage with three points while Australia lost all their games.
