Club Career

Silva was born in Massachusetts and moved to Portugal when he was four years old. The right back has spent his career in the Portuguese second and third divisions.

He originally came up with Boavista before the Porto-based club fell on hard times and played on loan at União Paredes and Gondomar. Silva spent a year with Nelas before moving on to FC Arouca. After a lengthy stint, he returned to Boavista for a year and then moved back to the second division with Leixões SC in July 2012.

International Career

Silva has never been called to play international soccer.

United States U20 and former UCSB keeper Justin vom Steeg has moved across the Atlantic to join 2nd Bundesliga club Fortuna Düsseldorf.
