David Villa's 400 goals by the numbers (0:53)

David Villa joined elite company in NYCFC's win over FC Dallas, becoming the sixth active player to reach 400 career goals for club and country. (0:53)

David Villa scored two goals to help New York City FC beat FC Dallas 3-1 on Sunday night.

Villa converted from the spot to give NYCFC a 2-1 lead in the 36th minute after Reto Ziegler was called -- after video review -- for a hand ball in the area.

New York City's Jesus Medina opened the scoring in the third, poking home a putback Jo Inge Berget's shot that was stopped by Jimmy Maurer. Villa stole it on the left side, beat a defender and dropped it to Anton Tinnerholm who first-timed it back to Villa near the goal line. Villa tapped it to Berget, whose one-timer was deflected by Maurer off the far post, but Medina was there for the side-net finish from point-blank range.

Santiago Mosquera answered for FC Dallas in the 10th minute, rolling a feed from Maximiliano Urruti past goalkeeper Sean Johnson. Urruti stole it near midfield, cutback to evade a defender and then tapped it with the outside of his foot to Mosquera, who took a dribble before side-netting the finish from the top of the box.

Villa, who missed three games in March due to a quadriceps injury, capped the scoring with his fourth goal of the season in the 69th minute.

Dallas came in without having conceded a goal in 208 minutes.
