Diego Costa backtracks and play with Brazil
Rectify is wise. That must have thought the Hispanic-Brazilian Diego Costa, who has finally decided to back away from his idea of playing with Spain and wearing the colors of Brazil. “It has been very hard. Thinking of hurting my country, in the possibility that people will insult my family and not being loved in your own land is too much. Thus, I will play with Brazil. I'm sorry I created so many problems for both countries” Diego Costa has assured through a statement.
Top gunner of the First Division with 19 goals, the Brazilian debuted with the “canarinha” last March in a friendly match against Russia. But nevertheless, not having done it officially, the player was available for an eventual call from Spain, thing that finally happened, although an injury prevented him from making his debut on the pitch.
Diego Costa's decision has marked the relations between two of the great favorites for the next World Cup to the point that Scolari came to pressure the player and the Spanish Federation to unsuspected points, something that the soccer player's environment did not like. It is not the first time that cases like these have happened, especially between Spanish and Argentines or Italians and Brazilians.
Without going any further three years ago, the now Parma Amauri player was involved in a similar case, although in that case I end up wearing the Italian shirt after being summoned by Brazil, the country where he was born.
The big question will focus on seeing how Scolari receives Costa's new change of mind and if he finally decides to take him summoned in a group where other renowned players such as Hulk also appear., Robinho, Fred or Neymar himself. In the case of Spain, it seems that there will be no problem in which the player wears the yellow elastic.
