Julen Lopetegui has already confirm that the striker will be leading the national team in the match against Italy
It seems that Diego Costa is going to become an important piece of the new spanish football squad. The national coach has been very clear today: “Diego Costa will be part of the first eleven tomorrow in the match against Italy”, he said. These words are not other thing but a confirmation than the Chelsea player could be an essential footballer for Lopetegui.
Two arguments are in his favour. First, his performance in the friendly match against Belgium and his two goals against Liechtenstein in the first game for the FIFA World Cup qualifiers. And second, his exceptional beginning of the season with Chelsea in the Premier League. In fact, he is right now the top scorer of the english competition with six goals in seven matches.
These are the main reasons why the national manager of Spain has decided to bring him back after the deception of the Eurocup, tournament he did not participate. Tomorrow will be the best time to him to show everyone why he is wearing the tshirt of La Roja again…
