David Silva helped himself to another 2 goals as Spain crushed Liechtenstein 8-0 in their opening World Cup qualification game. The Manchester City midfielder, who grabbed both goals in a 2-0 win against Belgium the other night, gave Spain a 3-0 lead following a neat assist from Vitolo:
Silva then thought he had grabbed his 2nd at 7-0, only to be denied by the referee:
Not to be denied, he did manage to grab his second moments later, after a smart lay-off from Manchester City team-mate Nolito allowed him the chance to produce a smart finish from close range:
Added to his 2 goals against Belgium, David has now scored 28 for Spain, taking him into 5th overall in the all-time top goalscorers, 1 ahead of former Liverpool man Fernando Morientes and one behind Fernando Hierro.
