WATCH: David Villa scores stunning goal in MLS

Updated: 

New York City star David Villa scored a stunning goal from distance in his team's MLS win on Friday.

The former Spain and Barcelona forward struck from just inside the attacking half in a 2-0 victory over Philadelphia Union in Pennsylvania.

Villa nudged a defender away before his outrageous right-footed attempt, which left Union goalkeeper Andre Blake scrambling.

But the shot-stopper was unable to keep out the incredible strike as it found its way in just under the crossbar.

Jack Harrison had opened the scoring for City, whose win was sealed thanks to Villa's goal.
