There have been allegations that Diego Costa was finding out the possibility of him playing for Brazil in the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Luiz Felipe Scolari the manager of Brazil is the man behind all these allegation of which Costa has totally denied.

Diego Costa aged 25 is a player of Atletico Madrid and had made a choice to play for Spain, a place where his club is based. The decision came to be a real story when in March, Costa represented Spain in a friendly match against Italy.

On the other hand, the Brazil boss said that he had contacted Costa with the plans of having him play for his native country before he made a decision to play for Spain. The Spain striker said that what Scolari was claiming did not at all happen.

He says that there was no phone call that came from Scolari. Costa said that the only person who contacted him was Del Bosque, the manager of Spain who showcased the interest in Costa by sending him an invitation for a meal.

Costa says that it’s after that when he knew Bosque had him in his plans. Costa further said that the fact that he is a Brazilian will never change although his target is to win the 2014 FIFA World Cup for Spain who are currently the defending champions.

All these were part of the responds to Scolari who was talking to O Estado de Sao Paulo on Friday. Scolari claims he contacted Costa two times and possibly he could be playing for Brazil in the upcoming summer tournament.

Scolari however admits that there were other competitors who had shown interest in the player and with the fact that he had the citizenship of Spain widened the opportunities he had in Europe.

Costa has had a very good season with Atletico Madrid who were the runners up of the UEFA Champions League scoring a total of 36 goals for Atletico Madrid.
