Recommended Posts

David Josué Jiménez Silva (born January 8, 1986 in Arguineguin, Las Palmas) is a Spanish footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Valencia CF and the Spanish national team.

A versatile and skilled player, Silva is capable of playing on either side of midfield, or as a traditional number 10. 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 5 occasions. In the following season he was again loaned, to Celta de Vigo, where he played 34 matches scoring 4 goals. After two late substitute appearances, the first in a 2-0 home win over Málaga CF, on August 28, 2005, Silva finished as an undisputed starter, as the Galician side reached the UEFA Cup straight from the second-tier.

On June 21, 2007, Silva signed a seven-year contract at Valencia, further cementing his place as one of the club's leading players and brightest prospects, alongside David Villa, Joaquin Sanchez, Vicente Rodriguez, Manuel Fernandes, Juan Mata and Raúl Albiol. In two seasons combined, he only missed six matches while netting 14 goals (his first coming on November 5, 2006, in a 1-1 draw at RCD Espanyol).

After not having appeared in the first three months of 2008-09 due to an ankle ailment,Silva returned to the call-ups in mid-December. On January 3, 2009, he scored twice in a 3-1 home win over Atlético de Madrid.

International career

Silva first represented Spain alongside Cesc Fàbregas, in the 2003 FIFA U-17 World Championship in Finland, scoring 3 goals. In 2006, he became an under-21 international, and scored 4 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 November 15, 2006. He continued to receive callups to the side after good contributions in his first games. On August 22, 2007, Silva scored his first goals for Spain, netting twice in a 3-2 friendly win versus Greece, and was called up to the squad of 23 for Euro 2008.

In the semi-finals game versus Russia, Silva scored the third and final goal for Spain after a quick counter-attack in which 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 (instead, both team captains Iker Casillas and Michael Ballack received yellow cards while trying to defend them). Shortly afterwards, Spanish coach Luis Aragonés substituted Silva for Santi Cazorla, in an attempt to calm the tensions.

Doloroso adiós a la Copa en el descuento (2-1)

El Valencia CF se despidió de la Copa del Rey en el último suspiro y de un modo doloroso al encajar el gol que le dejaba fuera de las seminfinales en el tiempo de descuento. Marchena marcó nada más empezar pero el Sevilla, a la desesperada, remontó el partido y la eliminatoria cuando ya se acariciaba la clasificación. Pese a que, ni mucho menos se llenó el Pizjuán, el partido arrancó con la presión prevista, con un Sevilla volcado sobre la portería del debutante César y un Valencia ordenado en la presión, con Mata y Silva como veloces referencias ofensivas. De la primera triangulación ofensiva entre Baraja y el canario nació, apenas a los siete minutos, un córner que fue impecablemente cabeceado por Marchena para que nada pudiera hacer la estirada de Palop. 0-1 y un Sevilla que debía ya hacer dos goles para eliminar a los de Emery.

La movilidad de Mata y Silva era una pesadilla para la adelantada defensa andaluza y el Valencia, firme en los balones aéreos a Kanouté, salía con rapidez en busca de un segundo gol que habría finiquitado la eliminatoria. Primero Joaquín, que se encontró con la veloz salida de Palop cuando ya daba el tanto a Silva y, pasada la media hora, Vicente, tras un sensacional pase atrás de Silva, lo tuvieron en sus botas pero se le anticipó la zaga cuando se cantaba el 0-2. De esa última jugada, sin solución de continuidad, se pasó al empate, en un cabezazo de Kanouté en una jugada a balón parado cuando peor lo tenía el Sevilla y que devolvía al partido al conjunto andaluz. Y de qué forma. El gol dejó por unos minutos tocado a un Valencia que había visto cómo podía haber resuelto la eliminatoria y que sufrió en defensa hasta el tiempo de descanso.

Tras el descanso, Emery echo mano enseguida de refresco de su banquillo: Fernandes, para dar mayor movilidad a la circulación de la medular y Morientes, para fijar atrás a la zaga sevillista. En respuesta, Jiménez no podía sino arriesgar y dar entrada a Renato por Duscher. El Valencia seguía en ventaja en la eliminatoria y el Sevilla a la desesperada en busca del segundo, cada vez con menos ideas y más balonazos. Cuando más duele, cuando ya el tiempo de descuento había asomado en el marcador, llegó el mazazo del gol de Squillaci, en un balón dividido a la salida de un córner. El sueño de la Copa se esfumó.
