David Villa scored New York City’s first goal at the Yankee Stadium on Sunday, securing a 2-0 win over New England Revolution.

The 19th minute strike was Villa’s first goal in the MLS, whilst it was New York’s first in their recently established history at home.

Villa’s goal came after he found Ned Grabavoy, who quickly played a one-two, before the former Valencia and Barcelona striker firmly slotted the ball past Revolution keeper Bobby Shuttleworth.

Mix Diskerud scored the team’s first ever goal last week, away to Orlando City, in which Brazilian playmaker Kaka scored a sublime free-kick.

Former Spain international Villa, 33, has now scored over 250 league goals in his career.
