UEFA Champions League Final: David Villa Puts Barcelona on the Brink of Glory
Barcelona are en route to another UEFA Champions League triumph.
Barcelona, firing on all cylinders, have Manchester United on their heels after David Villa fired a brilliant, curling strike to give Barcelona a commanding 3-1 advantage in the waning moments at Wembley.
After Lionel Messi (again) dribbled through Manchester United's entire defense, Villa caught a stray ball, trapped it, took a step back and launched a jaw-dropping shot into the upper left-hand corner of the net that Manchester United's Edwin van der Sar had no chance at saving.
For Villa, a European triumph would mark a momentous year-long campaign.
He won the World Cup as a member of Spain last summer in Africa, had a lucrative move from Valencia to Barcelona and then, finally, helped Barcelona triumph on Europe's grandest stage.
Twitter quickly responded to Villa's goal by starting to speculate if this Barcelona side is the best of all time. Certainly, Barca's 2009 side would have something to say about that, but Barcelona are on route to another European triumph.
Are they the best of all time? We'll soon find out.
