The problems of the top scorer from the Primera Division are not at the end. Costa could watch the World Cup in Brazil on TV if it will not impress the La Roja grouping tactician. Vicente del Bosque said the 25-year-old striker has not secured yet his place in the Spanish squad for the World Cup in 2014.

“Diego Costa will not receive credit indefinitely from us. Yeah, we feel less obliged to him, in view of the decision that he took, but we will take a final decision only judging by his performances.”

“What he did was very risky, especially since given up the dream of playing for Brazil at the expense of Spain. We have many options in attack and certainly I and my staff will try to choose the best. However, we will play more matches before the World Cup, so I have time to make a decision,” said Spain’s coach.

15 goals in 15 matches has scored Diego Costa for Atletico Madrid this season. 25 million euros is the striker’s share on the transfer market.
