The new Citizen wasn't unhappy with la Furia Roja's draw...

Spain required a late intervention from David Silva to pick up a 1-1 draw against Mexico on Wednesday evening, and the Manchester City star doesn’t believe that was a bad way for the newly crowned world champions to begin their reign.

Having fallen behind to a Javier Hernandez strike, la Furia Roja toiled until stoppage time to draw level, though Silva feels that Vicente del Bosque’s side might even have won the match on another day.

“In the end we got the draw and we could have got the win but it was not be,” he said. “We arrived a day ago, we have jet lag and the altitude is very noticeable, but the match has been nice and serves as a preparation [for the European Championship qualifiers].”

Just days away from his probable debut with the Citizens, Silva was quick to affirm his commitment to the national side.

“I always try to be the best, 100 per cent, and will be with the selection when the coach deems it appropriate,” the former Valencia man said.

Spain meet Liechtenstein in the Euro 2012 qualifiers on September 3 before facing Lithuania and Scotland in an October double-header.
