An ever-present in the Spain set-up since 2008, David Silva was an integral part of the squads that won the FIFA World Cup™ in 2010 and European Championship titles in 2008 and 2012. Following the retirement of several big names in 2014, the left-footed attacking midfielder became one of the side’s senior members and has been a key figure in the team's tactical plans.

El Mago ('The Magician'), as he is appropriately nicknamed, heads to Russia 2018 in superb form, having developed his attacking game at English Premier League champions Manchester City, where he has been operating with complete freedom in a playmaking role. A sublime passer of the ball, devilish dribbler and inspired finisher, Silva is one of Spain’s match winners.
