How Silva teases Stones
John Stones joined Manchester City in August of 2016 from fellow Premier League outfit, Everton.
Since joining the Citizens, Stones has won two Premier League titles, two League Cups, an FA Cup and the Community Shield.
However, unlike some of his Man City teammates, Stones has never won anything at international level.
As a result, Stones revealed in a recent interview that David Silva makes fun of him by sending him a picture of the titles that Silva has won with Spain:
“He’ll send me a picture of the three things he’s won [with Spain].
Stone also mentions that there is a lighter side to Silva’s messages, as the Spaniard tells him: “This might be you, one day”.
“That’s something he’s so proud of and I… pfff… I don’t want to say that I can’t imagine it. I couldn’t imagine it years ago happening but now we’re so close to something special.” As quoted by the Telegraph.
England vs the Netherlands
Stones could well get his hands on his first ever international trophy inside the next month.
It would also be a title that David Silva has never won, as it is the first ever Nations League tournament.
England will play the Netherlands on June 6th in the NL semi-finals.
Whoever wins said game will face Portugal or Switzerland in the final for the right to be crowned the inaugural Nations League champions.
