This is not going to be a popular opinion: David Silva has been very very bad. Like, super bad. His passing weight is way off today and he's doing just as much as the Portugal defence to stifle Spain's attacks. A case in point: After bursting through the middle to set up a great opportunity for himself and Andres Iniesta, he appears to be caught in two minds about what to do and ends up passing to nobody in particular and gives up the ball. What?
With the likes of Cesc Fabregas and Juan Mata on the bench, you'd have to think that Vicente del Bosque will have to do something about Silva if this keeps up. He's been extraordinarily poor. Of course, now I've said that he'll score or something.
