|Diego Costa is the hottest player in Europe right now|
While Costa has in fact played for Brazil in two friendlies against Italy and Russia, those were friendlies hence his eligibility to play for Spain. He recently gained Spanish citizenship, after his arrival in 2006. Costa was rightfully disgusted that Brazil coach Filipe Scolari overlooked him for the Confederations Cup in June. I agree with him. If Scolari and Brazil really reckoned with him, they should have selected Costa after several impressive displays for Atletico Madrid in the past season. I mean what else did he have to do to prove himself, score a 100 goals or what? Jo made that team for Heaven's sake!!! Jo!!!
|Costa will be looking to switch allegiance after representing Brazil|
There is another side to the story. Many feel that the current situation may bring us back to the old days where players represented multiple countries. Alfredo Di Stefano represented both Spain and Argentina back in the day(Really funny in retrospect). I beg to differ. Costa may have played for Brazil but it was just two friendlies with nothing really at stake. Those matches should not decide the country he wants to represent, with the possibility of him being tied down to Brazil without ever representing them in competitive fixtures. He is Spanish as he is also Brazilian. He has a right to choose between them.
|We can only hope Costa puts Scolari to shame|
