David Villa, Xabi Alonso and Pedro Rodriguez scored for world and European champion Spain in a 3-0 win over Venezuela in an international friendly on Tuesday.

Villa scored after only five minutes from a free kick to beat 'keeper Renny Vega. Pedro Rodriguez scored in the 20th minute and Alonso added another in first-half stoppage time.

Venezuela hopes to use the match as a warm-up for the Copa America, which starts July 1 in Argentina. The victory is the second in three days for Spain following a 4-0 victory over the United States on Saturday.
