David Silva spoke to Telecinco's pitchside cameras after Thursday's friendly with Belgium. Apart from the 2-0 victory in which he contributed both goals, the Manchester City player has extra reason to feel happy - he is now level with Emilio Butragueño as the joint sixth top scorer of all-time in the history of Spain's national team.

Satisfaction: "To be honest, apart from result, we played some really nice football tonight".

Intensity: "It was quite an intense match - we had hold of the ball for most of it and we had our chances on goal, and that's what matters".

New coach, very little time together: "We've hardly had any time at all with the new coach and there are some new faces in the squad, but despite all that, I think we have adapted really well and now we have to keep improving".
