Spain calls up Diego Costa for Italy friendly

Share This Story



Spain coach Vicente del Bosque has called up Brazilian-born Diego Costa for next week's friendly against Italy.

Del Bosque says the squad for Wednesday's match in Madrid will not determine his final player selection for this year's World Cup.

Strikers David Villa and Fernando Torres were both left off the list, but Del Bosque says ''we don't close the door to anything.''

Diego Costa had been called up by Spain for a pair of November friendlies but injury kept the Atletico Madrid striker sidelined.

Spain will play Bolivia in a friendly on May 30 in a final warm-up before it faces the Netherlands in its opening World Cup match on June 13.
