Costa dropped from Spain squad: Del Bosque angry over striker's behaviour

Former Spain international Luis Garcia is confident that, with Diego Costa leading the attack for La Roja at the Euro 2016, they can win it.

Costa was dropped from the Spain squad for the friendlies against Italy and Romania, with a quadriceps injury keeping him out.

And Garcia believes with the chelsea striker up front, Spain can lift the Euro’s a third successive time.

“I think Diego Costa is the man for Spain, yes,” the former Liverpool winger told Omnisport.

“If he finishes the way he does with [Cesc] Fabregas, the way he does right now at Chelsea, then he’s going to be our striker with [Paco] Alcacer and maybe [Fernando] Torres, or maybe another player who is coming through right now.”

The 37-year-old believes Costa will not be the only key figure for Spain in France, saying Real Madrid’s Isco could also make the difference for Del Bosque’s side.

“I think Isco is going to be one of our main men; with [Andres] Iniesta, with Santi Cazorla – hopefully he gets fit – [David] Silva of course, another player [Sergio] Busquets, the midfield is going to be very strong,” the ex-Liverpool man added.

“And for me one of the most important players is going to be Isco for the national team because he’s got something different.

“It’s not about passing, or it’s not about pace, it’s about having something different and he’s going to probably be the key player to break some of the defenders of the other national teams.”
