Spain coach reassures on Diego Costa’s fitness

by -

Chelsea striker Diego Costa has missed Spain’s two opening training sessions in Madrid with muscle fatigue and a left groin bruise but Spanish coach Julian Lopetegui reassures about his fitness, saying his issues are not so serious:

“We haven’t discarded Diego for Saturday’s game,” Lopetegui said to Radio Onda Cero.

“We will see how he progresses. It’s true that his recovery has not been as positive as we had expected.

“But we are hopeful that he will feel better tomorrow and we can take a small step forward thinking ahead of Saturday’s game. We have to wait.”
