Silva dreaming of third Euro success

David Silva says he used to dream of winning trophies when growing up and is hoping to add to his collection at Euro 2016.

The Manchester City midfielder has won 99 caps for his country, during which time La Roja have lifted the World Cup along with two European Championships, and Silva admits it would be special for his country to achieve a third consecutive Euro success.

“To win 100 caps would be fantastic, especially at the Euros,” Silva told the Daily Mirror. “When I was a youngster playing on the streets in Gran Canaria I never thought I’d play for Spain once, apart from in my dreams.

“My first kit was a goalkeeper’s shirt that was too big for me and I soon realised I was better with my feet than my hands.

“I used to watch Spain games on television and hoped one day that could be me, but to have played so many times during an important period of success is a big thrill.

“However, as always the dream is to win and winning the Euros for a third time is going to be tough. There are so many great teams going to France.

“Even so, that is the challenge and we have a team capable of beating anybody.”
