             === Villa breaks leg in Barca's Club World Cup win ===
 
 Yokohama,  Japan  (Sports  Network)  - Barcelona and Spain striker David Villa
 broke his left leg Thursday, marring the Spanish  club's easy 4-0 win over Al-
 Sadd from Qatar in the FIFA Club World Cup semifinals.
 
 Adriano scored a first-half brace as Barcelona demonstrated its dominance, but
 the injury to Villa late in the opening half was later revealed as a fractured
 tibia that leaves his season in doubt.
 
 Villa is  Spain's all-time leading scorer, and played an integral role in both
 the Euro 2008 and 2010 World Cup triumphs for his country.
 
 Although he played a lesser role for Barca this season, he scored 30 goals for
 the club last  season. His injury could  rule him out for the rest of the club
 season, as well as next summer's Euro 2012 finals.
 
 Seydou Keita and Maxwell added second-half goals for Barca in the easy win, as
 it advanced to Sunday's final to play South American champion Santos.
 
 Al-Sadd will play Japanese side Kashiwa Reysol in the third-place game Sunday.
