David Villa to miss final

June 27, 2008 02:50 IST

Spain forward David Villa will miss the Euro 2008 final against Germany through injury, coach Luis Aragones told reporters after they beat Russia on Thursday.

"Villa won't be playing in the final. He suffered a muscle strain," Aragones said after his team beat the Russians 3-0.

Villa came off after 35 minutes to be replaced by Cesc Fabregas after appearing to injure himself taking a free kick.

Sunday's final will be played at the Ernst Happel stadium.
