The striker has been at the centre of an international tug-of-war between La Roja and the nation of his birth but has opted to play for Vicente Del Bosque's side


Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa has rejected a call-up from Brazil and officially confirmed he will play international football for Spain.


The 25-year-old has been at the centre of a tug-of-war between La Roja and the country of his birth and was handed a call-up by Luiz Felipe Scolari for Brazil's upcoming friendlies with Honduras and Chile in November.


But after weeks of speculation, Costa has confirmed his desire to represent Spain by signing an official declaration, revealed in statement on the official website of the Spanish national team on Tuesday.


"On the morning of Tuesday, November 29, the Brazilian Spanish player Diego Da Silva Costa "Diego Costa" has come to the notice Serrano 30, where he proceeded to sign a letter which states his intention to play for Spain.


"The letter was given to D. Julio Cesar Avelleda, secretary general of the Confederation Brasileira de Futebol (CBF), and confirms his desire to be available to the Spanish national coach Vicente del Bosque, as of right now.


"Thus, Diego Costa will play for Spain in the next games for the month of November, if deemed appropriate by the national team coach."


Thats a disgrace


Do not agree with it at all


Imagine he scored the winning goal vs Brazil in Brazil in the final


Don't think he would leave the stadium alive

I am dissappionted

Very dissappionted

The closest thing to Ronaldo that Selecao have had in terms of ability as a CF

The thing is he should of asked the likes of Torres/Villa/Llorente/Negredo/Soldado what life is like as a La Roja CF

I am truly dissappionted apart from Fred there isn't anybody else currently

This will drag on for months because he will still be able to do a u-turn until the WC squads are submitted
