Daniel de Silva


On the 2nd of March, 2013, Danny de Silva became the second youngest debutant in Hyundai A-League history at the age of 15 years 11 months 24 days when he came on for 27 minutes in a 2-1 victory over Sydney FC. Since then, Danny de Silva’s career has taken off.

De Silva became the youngest goal scorer ever in any level of FIFA World Cup competition when he scored a late equaliser against Colombia. After multiple impressive performances for Perth Glory FC, de Silva was signed by AS Roma for an Australian record of $2.5 million and will leave for the Italian capital after one final season with Perth Glory FC.
