Darío Debray Silva Pereira (born 2 November 1972) is a retired Uruguayan footballer who played as a striker.

After making a name for himself in his country and in Italy with Caglari, he spent the following seven years of his career in Spain - scoring 48 La Liga goals in 163 games, mostly for Málaga - before moving to England, where he suffered a serious car accident shortly after leaving Portsmouth, which caused him to lose a leg, and effectively end his career.

Amongst other tournaments, Silva represented Uruguay at the 2002 World Cup, gaining nearly 50 caps.
