Villa struck for a brace to lift New York City FC to a 2-0 win over the Houston Dynamo on Friday night. In the 52nd minute, Jack Harrison played a short corner kick to Andrea Pirlo, who quickly passed to Villa. The Captain slipped the ball inside the far post through Houston goalkeeper Joe Willis’ legs from an extreme angle to give NYCFC a 1-0 lead.
In the first minute of second half stoppage time, Villa took a pass from Tony Taylor and blasted the ball into the net to seal NYCFC’s 2-0 win.
This is his 21st goal, putting him level with Bradley Wright-Phillips atop the race for the MLS Golden Boot, and the sixth time this season that he scored two goals in a game.
