CURITIBA, Brazil, June 23 (Reuters) - David Villa gave Spain
a 1-0 halftime lead over Australia with a clever back-heel as
the already eliminated World Cup holders looked to restore some
pride in their final Group B match on Monday.
Villa, Spain's record goalscorer, turned in a cross by
Juanfran in the 36th minute.
Spain made seven changes to the team which lost 2-0 to Chile
and looked a bit disjointed in the first 20 minutes. They
gradually, however, began to take control of the game with Villa
looking particularly dangerous.
Australia have also already been eliminated.
