Spain coach Luis Aragones heaped glowing praise on David Villa for his last-gasp strike in the 2-1 win against Sweden, describing the Valencia striker´s goal as "almost impossible".

Villa, fresh from his hat-trick in the midweek triumph over Russia, netted his side´s winner deep into injury-time to help Spain move within touching distance of a quarter-final spot with two victories from two.

"We were fortunate to have Villa, who scored a goal which was almost impossible to score," Aragones said. "If you look at it from the outside you wonder just how he managed to score it."
