Spain again FOR COSTA

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - SPORT -

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.
