Cape Town, South Africa (Sports Network) - David Villa scored the match-winning goal in the second half and Spain defeated Portugal, 1-0, on Tuesday at Green Point Stadium to advance to the quarterfinals of the FIFA World Cup.

Villa scored in the 63rd minute when he followed his own deflected shot with a second chance off the underside of the crossbar, and pulled into a tie for the tournament lead with four goals.
