Diego Costa was at a promotional event hosted by Spain’s kit manufacturers Adidas, where he spoke about the sides disastrous start to the tournament, being walloped 5-1 by the Netherlands.

“Nobody likes to lose, and certainly not like that, but people know we won’t collapse, because we’ve still got a chance”, said the striker. “We need to learn from the defeat and use it as a lesson, so it doesn’t happen again”, he went on.

As to Spain’s chances of qualifying from Group B (with Chile and Australia the sides still to play) Brazilian born Diego Costa said “We’ve got options. The good thing about life is that you have a chance, we need to take advantage of that and keep fighting until the end”.

Next up for Spain are Chile, who beat Australia 3-1 in their opening game, but had looked somewhat rattled at 2-1 as the Socceroos came close on several occasions to levelling the match. For Diego Costa that game against the South Americans is “the game of our lives, to keep our hopes alive in the competition”.

Being Brazilian born, but turning out for Spain in a World Cup in Brazil has its downsides for a player and Diego Costa was subjected to a barrage of booing during Spain’s game against the Netherlands, however he said he was “very happy to be at his first World Cup”, though given the result against the Netherlands he admitted it “was not how I wanted my [official] debut to go”. “I’m going to give everything for this shirt [Spain’s]. If we are all united, we can progress and make the fans happy once again”.
