Etihad Airways Player of the Month (July): David Villa

New York City FC forward David Villa has been voted by the fans as the Etihad Airways Player of the Month for July.

The 33-year-old forward was on fire this past month, finding the back of the net six times in just four matches. On top of that, Villa also scored the winning goal in the 2015 Major League Soccer All-Star Game on July 29 in a 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in Colorado.

Villa, New York City FC's first-ever signing, scored both goals in a 2-1 win at Montreal on July 4, two goals in the 4-4 draw with Toronto FC on July 12 and had another brace in the 5-3 victory over Orlando City SC on July 26.

The captain was named to the MLS Team of the Week three times in July (Weeks 18, 19 and 21) and was nominated for MLS Goal of the Week twice (Weeks 19 and 21).

Villa, who was nominated for MLS Player of the Month (July), leads New York City FC with 13 goals and ranks third in MLS.
