David Soria Solís (born 4 April 1993) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Sevilla FC as a goalkeeper.
Born in Madrid, Soria finished his formation with Real Madrid. Following his release, he moved to England and trialled at Leicester City, who let him go after an injury on his first day; he was then discarded by Birmingham City after six weeks because of their salary cap, and ended his trial at Stoke City due to feeling discouraged.
On his return to Spain, Soria failed to gain a contract at Real Betis B because of a change of coach, and was not considered experienced enough for Abelardo Fernández's Sporting de Gijón in Segunda División. He subsequently trained at CD Canillas to maintain his fitness, but did not make his debut for the club; at the time, he also thought about retiring from football.
Soria joined Sevilla FC in January 2013, and made his debut as a senior with the C-team in Tercera División. He was promoted to the reserves in 2013, and played 16 matches in his first season in Segunda División B, adding 34 in the following.
Soria was also an unused substitute seven times for the main squad in La Liga in 2014–15, his first being a 2–0 home win over Getafe CF on 14 September when he featured in place of Mariano Barbosa as reserve. He also sat on the bench for one match of their victorious campaign in the UEFA Europa League, a 2–1 quarter-final first leg win against FC Zenit Saint Petersburg at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium on 16 April.
In September 2015, Marca predicted that Soria could break into Sevilla's first team due to the poor form of their goalkeepers Beto and Sergio Rico. Manager Unai Emery gave him his debut on 2 December, a 3–0 win at UD Logroñés in the last 32 round of the Copa del Rey.
Soria was the undisputed goalkeeper in the knockout stage of the Europa League, keeping a clean sheet in a 3–0 home win over Molde FK on his continental debut on 18 February 2016. He renewed his contract with the Andalusians on 5 April 2016, signing until 2019.
In the quarter-final second leg against compatriots Athletic Bilbao, on 14 April 2016, Soria made an error to allow Aritz Aduriz to score, but saved from Beñat Etxebarria in an eventual penalty shootout victory. He was also in goal for the final in Basel, a 3–1 win over Liverpool on 18 May.
