About David Silva
David Josué Jiménez Silva (born 8 January 1986 in Arguineguín, Las Palmas) is a Spanish footballer who currently plays for Valencia FC and the Spanish national team. Silva is capable of playing on either wing or as a traditional number 10, and sometimes as a supporting striker. A player of slight build, he is often compared to Pablo Aimar, the player he replaced at Valencia, also donning Aimar's trademark number 21.Club career Silva made his professional debut in 2004–05 at Segunda División's SD Eibar, on loan from Valencia CF, playing 35 league games and scoring on five occasions. In the following season, he was again loaned, this time to Celta de Vigo, where he played 34 matches, scoring four goals. After two late substitute appearances, the first in a 2–0 home win over Málaga CF on 28 August 2005, Silva finished as an undisputed starter as the Galician side reached the UEFA Cup straight from the second-tier. In two seasons combined, he only missed six matches while netting 14 goals (his first coming on 5 November 2006 in a 1–1 draw at RCD Espanyol). After a three-month absence due to surgery for a chronic ankle ailment,Silva returned to the call-ups in mid-December. On 3 January 2009, he scored twice in a 3–1 home win over Atlético de Madrid International career David Silva first represented Spain alongside Cesc Fàbregas in the 2003 FIFA U-17 World Championship in Finland, scoring three goals. In 2006, he became an under-21 international and scored four goals during the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship; this was enough to earn him joint 4th place in the goal ranking, alongside Italian striker Graziano Pellè. Silva made his senior international debut in the 1–0 friendly home defeat to Romania on 15 November 2006. He continued to receive call-ups to the side after good contributions in his first games. On 22 August 2007, Silva scored his first two goals for Spain, netting twice in a 3–2 friendly win versus Greece. He was then called up to the squad of 23 for Euro 2008. In the semi-finals game versus Russia, Silva scored the third goal for Spain after a quick counter-attack in which Cesc Fàbregas delivered a low cross for Silva, who sent the ball into Igor Akinfeev's goal with his left foot. In the final, Silva was involved in an incident with Germany's Lukas Podolski. After he pulled Podolski to the ground, the German approached Silva, which resulted in an angry exchange of words and a coming together of heads that the referee decided not to punish. Shortly afterward, Spanish coach Luis Aragonés substituted Silva for Santi Cazorla in an attempt to calm the tensions.
