Manchester City attacker David Silva has backed Barcelona's Munir El Haddadi to shine for Spain.

Munir, 19, only made the breakthrough into the Barca first team this season, but has already been called up to the La Roja senior team following an injury to Diego Costa.

Real Madrid right-back Dani Carvajal praised the youngster earlier this afternoon and Silva has also added his thoughts on the teenager.

"He's a great player and he's doing well. He's here with us because he's been with the Under-21 side. We'll help him to adapt as quickly as possible and he's joined us with a lot of enthusiasm. I'm sure he's really looking to making his debut and doing well," he told reporters.

Spain face Macedonia in a Euro 2016 qualifier on Monday.
