DID YOU KNOW ?

Diego Costa started his career at Barcelona Esportivo Capela in São Paulo, being limited to street football until the age of 16.

On July 8, 2009, he was sold from Atlético Madrid to Real Valladolid as part of the deal that sent goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo in the opposite direction. The transfer included a buy-back option which were activated by Atlético at the end of the season.

On March 5, 2013, Diego Costa was called up by Brazilian national team coach Luiz Felipe Scolari for friendlies with Italy
and Russia. He made his debut against Italy 16 days later.

On October 29, 2013, Diego Costa declared that he wished to play international football for Spain after having been granted Spanish nationality a few months earlier.
