Following the 0-1 Euro 2016 qualifying win on Tuesday evening, Costa admitted that he had no idea he had been booked so many times and was frustrated with his inability to go out and try to score in their next match.

“Banned against Luxembourg? This is the first I’ve heard of it.”

Costa went on to speak about his lack of goal-scoring for La Roja and insists that he will continue trying to get on the board as soon as he’s able to play.

“I needed to improve a lot and score goals.  I tried to drop down onto the wings.  I will not accept this.  I’m going to continue working hard in my club in order to improve.  I’m very excited when I get to join the national team.”

Costa then concluded by stating that he is not pleased with his personal performance but is happy that Spain was able to get three points and move one step closer to their overall objective.

Personally, I’m not happy because I wasn’t able to complete my objective, which was to score, although I’m happy Spain got the victory.  We earned three important points in order to get one step closer to qualifying.”

Costa will not likely see another game for Spain until their friendly against England on November 13th in Alicante.
