SilvaAccording to the RFEF (Royal Football Federation), Silva experienced slight discomfort in his hamstring following the team’s training on Sunday afternoon at the Las Rozas training facility.

Silva was then taken to the CEMTRO clinic and after an MRI, it was discovered that the Canarian had a “slight muscle injury” and “as a precaution, was sent home to avoid complications to the injury.”

Silva was granted permission to leave the camp and will likely head to Manchester to continue his treatment, while Spanish national team manager, Vicente Del Bosque has ruled out the possibility of calling anyone else up for Tuesday’s friendly to replace Silva or Real Madrid midfielder, Isco, who also suffered an ankle injury and was forced to leave the camp to return to Madrid for treatment.
