Spain again FOR COSTA
SPAIN coach Vicente del Bosque has recalled controversial forward Diego Costa for friendlies against England and Belgium this month.
Costa, criticised for his conduct with his English club Chelsea and lack of form for the Spain side, had been left out for a Euro 2016 qualifier against Ukraine. Brazilian-born Costa has scored only one goal in nine games for Spain after switching allegiance.
He had previously made two substitute appearances for Brazil. – Reuters Squad: Goalkeepers: Iker Casillas, David De Gea, Sergio Rico.
