Despite having two caps for Brazil, Diego Costa will be representing Spain at the World Cup in Brazil. Currently enjoying his time at Atletico Madrid, he has enjoyed a fantastic season prior to the World Cup. At the age of 25 it is only recently he has been placed in the spotlight, and will undoubtedly feature for Spain. Due to his brilliant last season, he is currently at 25/1 to win the golden ball.
Diego Costa World Cup betting
Costa will be part of a Spanish team that will provide excellent service with some world class midfielders controlling the game. However, prior to this World Cup he only has two international caps to his name, and they were for Brazil. His lack of experience at international level could prove to be a stumbling block, but he has certainly proved what he is capable of in La Liga, particularly in the 2013/2014 season. He will face competition from fellow Spaniard Alvaro Negredo who has also had a great season with Manchester City, however Costa is deemed to be more likely to be Spain’s top scorer in the tournament, BetVictor placing him at 3/1. The Cup could well provide Costa with his opportunity to impress on an international scale, who will most likely get the nod ahead of Negredo due to his recent goal scoring form.
The reigning champions will be expected to go far in the tournament, which will provide the likes of Costa more games to rack up the goals, meaning he could be a strong contender to win the golden ball. However this does depend how well he adapts to the international game, as two caps is vastly inexperienced coming into such a huge international competition. If he reproduces the same form he has shown for Atletico, Spanish fans could be in for a treat with the likes of Iniesta, Fabregas and David Silva providing him with the key passes he will thrive on.
