Espana Is Wondering What Happened to Diego Costa????

The brilliant sights and sounds of the World Cup in Brazil provided many twists and turns. None more glaring than the early exit of 2012 European Champions and 2010 World Cup Champions Spain. The team had a horrid showing, but the player with the highest hopes and lowest production was Diego Costa. Diego Costa was deemed to be the one of the players to watch for Spain. He impressively was able to start over the established superstars of the team Fernando Torres and David Villa. If a coach of Del Bosque’s caliber decided to start Costa over these amazing and battle tested players then surely the kid must have some juice. Unfortunately, Diego Costa really was not all that impressive. He scored 0 goals in two crucial group games. Colombia’s James Rodriguez stole the spotlight and put on an awesome array of scintillating skills showing the world just what he is capable of.

After a dissappointing World Cup Diego Costa had to transition himself from the La Liga to the Barclay’s Premiership. When in Spain Diego Costa scored 43 goals for Atletico Madrid in 94 appearances, which is a stellar strike rate. The folks at Stamford Bridge were praying the form that Diego had in Brazil stayed in Brazil. After all Chelsea would be paying Costa 150,000 pounds a week for 5 years. Which is roughly 7.2 million pounds a year; in dollars that is 9.2 million dollars. Now Diego Costa can’t stop scoring. He has overcome the shame of the 2014 World Cup & has been a complete nuisance to opposing defenses. The Premiership campaign still has that new car smell, but Diego is proven to be a notch above the rest. In four games Diego has scored seven goals and is a BIG reason why Chelsea currently sit atop the premiership table. The folks in Spain are left wondering where was this Diego 3 months ago. He seems to suffer from the Wayne Rooney syndrome. Chelsea fans will love the disease whereas the Spanish fans will be asking for his head. To be fair I will say that the World Cup started about 3 weeks after a lot of campaigns in Europe were ending. So naturally after long grueling campaigns the body needs to rest and recover. That may be a contributing factor to his poor showing. What can you do for me now is how the sporting world operates and Diego Costa can do it all.

Here is a compilation of the 7 goals he has scored so far in an already exciting Premiership season. -BoSo
