Mata came on for David Villa in the 56th minute and then scored in the 82nd minute of Spain's 3-0 win over Australia at the World Cup on Monday.

Mata's goal put the finishing touches on a dominant performance that was too-little-too-late for Spain, who had already been eliminated from knockout stage contention thanks to losses to Netherlands and Chile. Mata will not get a bit of a rest before he begins his first full season at Manchester United.

Mata bagged two second half goals during Manchester United's 4-0 win over Norwich City on Saturday.

Mata didn't even start the match, but he came on for Danny Welbeck in the 60th minute and was able to find the back of the net only three minutes later. He seems to finally be coming into his own at United, which is unfortunately a little too late for their European aspirations.

Mata went on record to say that he believes Manchester United will have a bright future under manager David Moyes, but that the team must pull together, reports Sky Sports.

The Spanish midfielder has been a decent addition to United this season despite the team's struggles. Mata said everything about the squad needs to improve, including the tactics, but the team needs to act as one unit.

Mata drew a penalty in the box to set up a Wayne Rooney goal from the spot, before scoring a goal of his own in the 57th minute of Manchester United's 4-1 win over Aston Villa on Saturday.

Mata's goal was his first for Manchester United after joining in January from Chelsea. In fact, the goal was his first in Premier League play all season after scoring 20 times in all competitions for Chelsea last season. He'll look to continue his improved form next weekend at Newcastle.

Mata admitted that he was mad that he was unable to help Manchester United defeat Liverpool on Sunday, according to the Daily Mail.

Mata was speaking positively of the support of the fans in Old Trafford after the loss to Liverpool, and relayed that not being able to live up to their expectations was disappointing. He joined Manchester united in January, but has failed to ignite a turnaround in the side's performances.

Mata assisted on Ashley Young's 59th minute goal during Tuesday's 2-0 win over Cardiff City.

Mata was eventually subbed off for Adnan Januzaj in the 85th minute, and left to big applause from the United faithful. Now that he's all but guaranteed regular first-team football, Mata's fantasy value will continue to climb from the deep fall it took during his first-half of the season with Chelsea.
