Costa: The decision to play for Spain has been made
Atletico Madrid striker, Diego Costa continued his whirlwind season by scoring both goals in a 2-1 win over Celta Vigo at the Vicente Calderon on Sunday afternoon and announced that “the decision to play for Spain has been made.”
“I touched the ball [on my first goal]. We’ll have to watch the TV replay. Godín tells me that he touched it and then I did, so I think it’s my goal.
“I don’t like missing penalties. When we get another I’ll take it.
“We had a lot of chances in the first half. We came flying out of the traps and had opportunities to score, but we didn’t get the rub of the green and the ball wouldn’t go in for us. We found it difficult to score. In the second half, you could see that we couldn’t maintain the intensity of the first.”
Costa then concluded by making the announcement all of Spain has been waiting for, he will be joining the Spanish national team when all of the red tape is cleared.
“I don’t get involved. What’s most important for me is to keep on working. It’s up to Fifa to make the decision. The decision to play for Spain has already been made.”
