Costa ‘Buzzing’ For World Cup With Spain

Spain striker, Diego Costa, has expressed his excitement of going to the World Cup with La Roja.

The 25-year-old has been included in Vicente del Bosque’s final 23-man World Cup squad and confirmed he has returned to team practice on Sunday.

The Brazil-born Spaniard has been suffering from an enduring hamstring injury, but seems to win the fitness battle for the World Cup.

“Honestly, I'm really buzzing; today is a very happy day for me. I was very excited about the prospect of representing Spain at the World Cup in Brazil. I'm delighted,” he told Marca.

“I'm doing great. I've been working with the physios and fitness coaches over the last few days and I feel really good. From Sunday I started working with the rest of the team under Vicente del Bosque's orders.”

Spain will face El Salvador in their final World Cup build-up game coming Saturday in Washington and Costa is hoping to test his fitness.

“I'm hoping to get a run-out in next week's game against El Salvador in Washington,” he added.

“I want to win it, obviously. We're going to put up a fight.”

However, if Costa’s injury would prevent him from World Cup participation, Del Bosque could still call up a replacement up to 24 hours before their opening Group B match against Netherlands on June 13.
