Del Bosque made his selections based on team harmony. He brought Silva and Reina even though he didn't want to, because otherwise the other players might revolt. And he didn't bring Soldado for the same reason

You sure? ......Hasn't Silva played most games? and well Reina was never going to get a game.

I think it has been a fairly boring games so far.

Rumours are Del Bosque wanted him to join up with the team earlier than he was supposed to but he refused, ergo he doesn't get picked.

surely he joined up along with the barça players after the copa del rey final? doesn't add up.

Yep. The whole reason for no striker in most games was that the players were firm with Del Bosque that Silva absolutely had to play, and Del Bosque didn't want to drop any of the midfielders.

Since he couldn't decide which striker to play before that, the striker was the dropped position.

Before the squad took a stand on Silva, the question wasn't whether Silva would play, it would be if he would even be called up. Silva himself said he wasn't expecting to be in the 23 man squad

Hasn't Silva played a fair amount in the qualifiers? Last Spain game I saw before the tournie was the England game. Even then Silva sort of played a false 9 with Villa on the left.
