When striker Villa ran riot for Spain in Belgium thrashing

Spain's most recent clash with today's opponents came seven years ago - and saw David Villa put on a show as the Belgians were routed.

Julen Lopetegui gets his tenure as Spain coach underway tonight (20:45 CEST) with a friendly against Belgium, who also begin life under a new boss in fellow Spaniard Roberto Martínez.

And the last time La Roja came up against the Belgians, in a World Cup qualifier in September 2009, striker David Villa was to the fore in a thumping victory.

'El Guaje' grabbed a brace and set up two more as Vicente del Bosque's side - who would go on to be crowned world champions at South Africa 2010 - won 5-0.
