David Silva is not only a key player for Manchester City but also for his national side Spain and he is certain that Spain is able to win the 2016 Euro’s and defend their title for another successive year.
“It’s normal we are tagged as favorites since we’ve won the previous two European Championships and these two matches. If we keep our current level of performance, we can be champions again. We want to keep our feet on the ground and focus on the next opponent Croatia” Manchester City’s David Silva said during a press conference.
Spain has kicked off their 2016 Euro’s campaign in full force after claiming consecutive triumphs over Czech Republic and Turkey. These victories have ensured Spain’s progression to the next rounds of the international competition.
The 2008 and 2012 edition of the Euro’s were won by Spain and they are one of the favorites of winning it once again during the 2016 and have initiated their campaign in a positive form which is good news, especially taking into consideration the disastrous journey that they went through in the 2014 World Cup when they failed to make it past the group stages.
The 30 year old Spanish midfielder performed in both of Spain’s opening matches against Czech Republic and Turkey and helped out his national side in clinching victories against both teams. Silva is also one of the most influential figures for Manchester City as he continues to prove his worth not only for his club but for his country as well.
After playing against Turkey on June 17 of 2016, Silva marked his named in the history-books of Spain as he joined a selective group of players that have managed to collect 100 international caps for Spain. Only 11 players have made this accomplishment and this group of elite players consists of: Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Andoni Zubizarreta, Xabi Alonso, Fernando Torres, Andres Iniesta, Cesc Fabregas, Raul and Carles Puyol.
