[SPAIN-RUSSIA REPORT CARD] David Villa became the first player to score a European Championship hat trick since 2000 when he led Spain to a 4-1 win over Russia. Villa also set up Cesc Fabregas' first goal for Spain - its fourth of the game - when he dribbled downfield before chipping a sublime pass to Xavi, whose shot was parried by Russian Igor Akinfeyev for Fabregas to hit home with a diving header. Soccer America's Mike Woitalla grades the players.
