Chelsea striker Diego Costa has been included in Vicente Del Bosque’s squad for the upcoming Euro 2016 qualifiers against Slovakia and Luxembourg next week.
The 25-year-old Brazil-born Spaniard has won five caps for his country, who has been struggling with a hamstring injury since the end of last season. He will join his fellow Blues players in the 23-man squad, with Cesar Azpilicueta and Cesc Fabregas also being named in the Spain squad.
