Scolari calls for Costa decision

Luiz Felipe Scolari has sent a message to Diego Costa regarding his controversial international future.

The Atletico Madrid striker has been the subject of a tug-of-war between Brazil and Spain in recent months after he was grated Spanish citizenship earlier this year.

But with the World Cup looming, the Selecao Coach has urged the forward to make a decision.

“I have offered Diego Costa the chance to be a World Cup player,” he told reporters. “Because Brazil are going to be there.

“Now he had to decide.”

Diego Costa has been named in the Brazil squad for their November friendlies, but Spain boss Vicente Del Bosque has admitted previously that he will pick the Atleti man should he come out and pick La Roja.
