Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa pledges future to Spain over Brazil | FOX Sports on MSN

The Spanish football federation says Costa, who is of Brazilian origin but also a Spanish national, had ”verbally manifested his intention of playing with the national team” to coach Vicente del Bosque on Thursday.

The RFEF said in a statement on its website that Costa will not be selected by Del Bosque for upcoming World Cup qualifying games, however, since the paperwork was not ready.

The in-form Atletico striker has been the standout player for the Spanish league co-leaders, with eight goals in seven games overall. via  | FOX Sports on MSN.
