New injury woe for Diego Costa

Atletico Madrid forward Diego Costa has suffered a foot injury in training and could face a spell on the sidelines.

Los Rojiblancos have confirmed the Spain international has ‘a trauma in his foot’ following Tuesday morning's training session and will now ‘train independently from his teammates’.

The 30-year-old is struggling in terms of his performances too having not registered a goal in La Liga since February, and not striking in eight league appearances to date this season.

Costa has not been included in the Spain squad for the upcoming Nations League qualifier against Croatia in Zagreb.
