HOLA! USA recently caught up with former Spanish national team member David Villa, who opened up about winning the 2010 title — after which the team celebrated with the Spanish royal family. Recalling his favorite memory from his days playing with Spain, the soccer star shared, “The 2010 World Cup in South Africa. That is the best memory for everyone.
