WORLD FOOTBALL CHALLENGE
Barca finally win one
BARCELONA 2, CLUB AMERICA 0
DALLAS—David Villa and Keita scored to give Barcelona their only win of the World Football Challenge, 2-0 over Club America in Saturday’s event finale at Cowboys Stadium.
Villa put the game away in the 24th minute, heading home his second goal in as many games off Adraino’s cross. Keita netted the capper in the 90th, after a hardworking left flank run by Gerard Deulofue to set the stage.
Christian Benitez was at the center of America’s few solid chances, finding Juan Carlos Medina in front of goal in the 30th minute, and missing to the right side in the 86th.
Barcelona finish the tournament at 1-2-0. America neither won a match nor scored a goal in the competition (0-3-0).
