David Silva retired from national team duty with Spain earlier this year, but his achievements will be honoured when Spain face Bosnia in a friendly later this month.
Spain will play in El Mago’s local Las Palmas for the first time since 2007 when they host Bosnia on November 18 and Silva has been invited as a special guest.

And the 32-year-old will take an honorary kick-off at the Estadio de Gran Canaria before leaving the pitch, after being invited by the Spanish FA. He’s likely to cross paths with former City teammate Edin Dzeko, who he won two Premier League titles in the same team as.
“November 18 will be a special day for all,” Spanish FA president Luis Rubiales said today.
“Remember that many players from this island have represented the national team.”
Silva called it a day from the Spanish national team in the summer after 125 caps and 35 goals.
